About Me

Hi Everyone I`m Jerrod! I live in Tassie, I`ve had large pb brown leghorns for about 20years. I started getting serious about breeding and started showing in 2004. The guys at the shows told me that no large brown had not been shown fpr about 20years also. I wanted to change this! I searched around Tas for the best colonial bred blood lines.I found that they were not far away from the mark.It wasnt until that i won the Leghorn club raffle in NSW, Ross Gibson organised for me a setting of large pb brown eggs! With a cross from a cockerel from the eggs over my own, improved the quality so much! Last year i went over to Lismore and met up with Vic Essery! I brought back a Lovely cockerel from him! I had a wonderful stay in Lismore also meeting Bob Fowler and Darren Collier. Thanks for the hospitality and Greetings to Everyone there!!

G/day Jerrod, Talking with Neil yesterday, he has some eggs due out any time know. I tend to forget our winter is your spring, as we have stopped breeding and are grooming birds for the shows starting in Oct, As you know our trip was cancelled so i started breeding late it wont be till Dec; when i have some thing to show, hopefully???trouble is the corn bill is going up again ,i just paid £70 for half a ton of wheat plus mash, and pellets, i was ok when i had just bantams but after my visit down there i got hooked on large fowl,i felt i just had to have a go at trying to improve some of of our largest,at the moment i have the silvers, Isabellas , and columbiums, they are new we have them in bantam and we are trying to make them in large, this will be are third year and have tryed different matings, the cocks look promising but pullets need to be mated back to columbian cock next year then if all go`s to plan we should be producing birds of a good columbian colour,also have been trying to breed gold/dw, this year seems to be it, had three cocks from two different mating have put them in so you can have a look at. I do like the look of your browns, the cocks look big and have the right colour, my one own criticism would be that the haggle is a shade light , a little bit darker,in line with the saddle haggle,would not look amiss, the females look a good size and may be a bit lighter than ours, do you suffer from shafting on the shoulders as light coloured birds tend to show that up??i think we may have set a president as far a leghorn web pages are conerned, Ross Gibson and my self taked abut this 6 years ago when i was last over, also of a book that depects all the colours so that judges can fall back to them if not sure of the colour they are judging ,as i dare say a lot of the judges over there as here, have may be just kept one colour and are very stayed in there ways as a lot of coloured birds are being kept and shown here now so the judges need to know were a colour starts and finishes.regards Keith

I take him along to the show`s because a lot of people including the public what does a pullet breeder male looks like. He is quite a good example. Even interest from other exhibitors!
