People around here like yard birds - bloodline, variety, breed makes no difference. I'm like Del,sell culls, make some folks happy, help out the feed bill.

I sell a few when I can to a couple folks that like seeing them on the yard but if I can't sell them then my nephew's feeder sows eat great that day. Gotta feed them some soon, very soon with the feed prices jumping like they are.

Well this year has been challengng year for me . I hatched almost 150 golden and blue goldens duck wings and as to date i have culled do to weak color not type over 100. This may be my last year to raise this variety. i was the only one showing this variety last year here in oklahoma. Not fun and and you have to keep them for so long to cull , feed getting higher, think it may be time to go with my other vaities spend more time with them oh by the way i am not through culling yet. Hope to have enough to show. i have been raisig bgdw and gdw for almost 4 years, time to move on

















This may be my last year

I raise mainly female line birds and I cull my males to the yard until they are near grown. The advantage of that, provided they don't get eaten, is that should one improve you can put them back in the game. Found a wheaten cockerel that molted out some trash in his breast and he might get to come off the bench before long.
