I though I would do a post on how fast my new Porcelain chicks are growing . Above is my porcelain rooster Glacier who is turning out to be a nice show quality bird which is good because I originally hatched out some Porcelains to get a rooster.
This is Polar my other Porcelain rooster who isn't as nice as Glacier because his comb has one to many points.
This is Mist flower my Porcelain hen who I might give to my sister as a show bird.
And this is China my hen named after China Porcelain dining ware which is how the Porcelain color got its name. Ive also been studying some of there color genetics and the Porcelain color can be created crossing a Self Blue and a Mille Fleur this gene is called the lavender gene and turns black to silvery blue and buff or orange to cream which is why they have a cream base color and silver barring with white dots.
This is one of the chicks at two weeks old, right now the chicks are 5 weeks old.
And this is when one of the chicks were just fluff balls and only a few days old.
