Albinos

9 posts in this topic

Ive been in the field either hunting or when I was about 4 just walking with my Daisy with the old man and have encountered few signs, my Dad shot an Albino rooster in 59 or 60 Mom cant remember exactly but it ended up getting stolen by the Taxidermist. Ive found 2 breast feathers in a roost about 12-13 years ago and one time we had a Albino hen fly into the side of the stopped truck on the road(We could see her a half section away coming at us), she survived but had a Robert Urich Bangaroo headache I could imagine LOL anyone have any experience with the White ones.

They had a picture of white rooster shot by a young man in this week's Slayton Wheel Herald. I don't know if it was a true albino or not.

Two years ago the wife and I chased an albino rooster the whole season but never even got close enough for a shot. I didn't see him last year. We still hunt the place where he always was just hoping to get a shot at him.

I have a picture of a white pheasant from last year in SD, the regular ones are prettier. I'll post it this weekend when I have time if you want to see it.

My dad shot a pi-bald (partly albino) pheasant years ago in Iowa. He has in mounted and prominently displayed in a box packed away in the basement, right next to another odd pheasant he shot that was transgender....Hen coloring with a rooster body and a white ring, and it cackled when it got up. DNR confirmed it.

My relation out near Redfield where we hunt shot one of those "freak" pheasants a long time back. He has it by his albino in a case in his livingroom. They are pretty crazy looking, this one had the green head and neck but a hen body, no spurs, short tail, and hen coloring. I wonder how common that is.

When I was a kid my dad accidentally got one in a trap. They are definitely rare.

I have a beautiful piebald rooster mounted that I shot about 10 years ago. It is a very mature bird with long tail feathers...some are all white, some are normal and the longest one is half white and half normal. Specks of white all throughout the back and head area, and the wings are white on the outer half. It really is a beautiful bird! A young hunter in the area shot a fully albino rooster at about the same time, and it looks a lot like a chicken.

    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
