first pic is cоck that came from Alan
second pic and third are of first two young off of original pair. These birds both have huge globes(theory is that the first eggs laid were fertilized by Gaditano from Alans)
other pics are recent young (not blown yet)

Very nice birds. I bet they will fly great. I have a cross that is a similar breeding equation but instead of laudino blood it has rafeno blood. He is an outstanding flier.

Yes, they are a joy to own. Talk about a "conquistador" temperament! These have it.

How do they fly?

Alan what do you think about the theory about the Gad mating with the Hen which was EL 118band? The cоck bird in the second photo which is the Gad/radar is a beast at thieving.Flies well,very driven and has picked up more than one bird from neighboring loft and feral birds also.

I am not clear what you mean about the theory. Can you explain it better for me. I am slow to catch on sometimes.

Re: Radars of Goodserpent


Alan, when you sent me the last radar hen which was band# EL 118 an 08 bird she laid eggs very quickly. I allowed the eggs to hatch but what I got was a pair of birds with huge crops. I have had several young since then, none showing this large crop size. Is it possible that the EL 118 hen had access to a Gaditano cоck or other cоck that would have caused the large crop in the first set of young?

Re: Radars of Goodserpent


Oh I get you now. I was confused because my Radars always have a Gaditano for a father.

Yes, that is very possible. But I don't remember whether or not she had access to a Gaditano cоck. But I have a lot of horny Gaditano cocks around here so it sure could be.

If they are 1/2 Gaditano and 1/2 Radar their structure should be different from the other Radars as well. I have a couple of hens here that are 1/2 Gaditano and 1/2 Radar and they look like Gaditanos with smaller crops. After all when you break it down they would be 3/4 Gaditano 1/8 Laudino and 1/8 Homer. So, they would look more like Gaditanos than anything.

Re: Radars of Goodserpent


thanks Alan, if you look at the pics I posted the 1st pic is the cоck that you sent me. 2nd pic is the first cоck that I raised that I beleive is 3/4 Gad and the 3rd pic is the nestmate, a hen, that would be 3/4 gad also. They just look diferent than the other birds I've raised.

Of course I have found that even when you deal with a set breeding plan, there can be a wide variey of types in crossbred pouters. I have raised many crossbred thief pouters and even nestmates can be differant as day and night.
