My tolbunt hens seem to get better with age; the hens often look better than the pullets. The barred tolbunts look very smart. Very bold black and white, it seems to work better than laced tolbunts. Sometimes they have a bit of black spangled pattern about them which all helps to make this tolbunt a dramatic pattern.
Millefleur means thousand flowers, which is the impression given by this multicoloured pattern. Pullets and cockerels for sale. Lovely type, brilliant layers and lovely easy temperament. They do go broody but not excessively and make wonderful mothers.
He was so blind he couldn’t see his food – dunno how he ate or drank enough to stay alive – even though he still walks into fences he now he sees well enough to spot hens and is always chasing them. Sometimes he even catches them!
Wormed all the birds today. They have to be on the wormer for a week. Also got the oregano extract an dwill give them that from next week and as have no excuse not to linseed oil all round from next week too as it is good for immune system and fertility and makes them shine more! 🙂
