Subscribing. Love the progress you made with these birds and really like the Cockerel in the last pic. At least from the top I do lol!

Thank you! I am pleased with the birds and the progress made. Tail sets are a bit high, and shanks a bit longer than Id like. But over all Im very happy with their "Type and Bone"..... They have very good size and fast growth for a heritage breed. Huge legs, full breasts, and good heads too. I live in Kansas and we have managed to weather winter good so far....No frost bite or losses at all, even with -10 with strong winds.... It got above freezing for the first time in a week today. Seemed really nice at 40 degs... Im tired of keeping water thawed to all those pens. Well, I'm crossing my fingers in hope of a early spring!! Then it all starts over again..... ;-)

If you ever need another person to help breed your line let me know. Breeding poultry is my only hobby and I and starting with Buckeyes this spring!


Here's two birds from some of my stock.
