I love my Hamburgs, they are small compared to a lot of breeds, but that is part of their charm, so I don't feel the need to experiment at the expense of the girls.
yeah, that's understandable. Wouldn't want to hurt one of the girls! Can't help but wonder what they would come out like if you mixed them with a light brahma though! Maybe if the Hamburg was the cock... Although... Dunno if he could manage to climb aboard! Hah!
