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.

    • Ha ha. I think my workin it, maybe somewhat your walking it.
    • The sad part of the whole thing, is if they would have somehow found a way to get one in OT to win Game 5, I think they finally got to Allen a bit. The forward D zone coverage was terrible in the game and for much of the series. Those goals that start out with a player against the boards skating in front of the net are a sign of a forward breakdown. The winning goal was on Zucker. It happens. I know we  were pressing a bit, but that killed us.   Now, for the offseason thread! :-) I would be willing to bet Haula isn't back. Ek, I think is going to be forced into the lineup and play a significant role next season. I would actually like to see Hanzal signed. I was a fan of the trade at the time and still am. I think as a 4th line guy he would be a nice addition. Perhaps Fletch can convince Pominville to waive his no trade clause to free him up for the expansion draft. I certainly don't expect Vegas to take him, and he wouldn't want to go there, but this would allow the team to protect one other player. We would have to eat some salary if we are able to ink a deal with another team, but I think that is doable. Russo actually was saying the same kind of thing in a recent interview.
    • I have a water jet pump and I have only needed to rely on it once when the power went out briefly. As floyd said it uses water to move water but it has its limitations. If you need it when the power goes out during a significant rain event its just going to make things worse.   I have a 1/2hp pump in my sump basin with a float on it. The waterjet also has a float on it set just higher than the main pumps float. in the event that the  1/2hp main pump burns out etc the water would raise high enough to hit the waterjet float and turn it on.   the battery back ups work great also but you need to maintain the batteries to make sure they are good to go when you need them and they are fully charged.   pros and cons to each but if possible I would opt to install both if you can.
    • Ihprop! Welcome to the forum and thanks for posting.  Just to get a better idea. Did you find it in a parking area or in the field? Mite help who ever lost it remember?
    • See I always use the poppin frogs for walking. I usually dont use the regular frog unless I am throwing it in really thick cover. Over the top of submerged weeds, timber, and docks I always use the poppin frog. For Spros, I actually think the poppin frog walks better than the regular one. 
    • I found some hunting gear yesterday and I figured I'd grab it and try to find the rightful owner before someone else claimed it for themselves. If you or anyone you know lost some hunting gear on public land in Waseca County over the past weekend, let me know.  If you can identify it, I will get it back to you.
    • Bummer. Battling a cough/cold here and the snooze alarm won this morning.  Hopefully I'll get out later this week.
    •   I use them and they seem to work fine. I guess with the poppin version I don't really walk them, I just work them in the holes and around other Bassy looking cover. I don't work them real fast. My guess is you would probably want to use the standard style for walking them.   Cret what versions did you test for walking, the standard styles or the poppin versions? 
    • Looked them up.   Personally they seem underpowered but it will depend on how much water you need to remove when you finally need that pump. The water powered pumps performance is based on water pressure. If you have 60+ psi then you can get 500-900 gpm and it looks like you will use 1 gallon of tap water for every 2 you pump out of the pit. For comparison I generally use 3/4 horse pumps at a minimum for the pumps which gives you something north of 3000 gph.   I'm not real sure if code and insurance even allow them so check first. If you have a small house and if the sump doesn't get used much it might be an option.
    • Just returned home last night. Had 3 Jake's come in at 7am on my 1st morning and decided to pass on them. Never saw or heard a Tom the next 5 days. Oh well maybe I learned a lesson. Good luck to all.
