Yes, these are the ones that went into the USPS "black hole" for 51 hours and were delivered, 250 miles away, on Thursday. They were shipped on Monday.
This is my first year breeding blacks. I bought black chicks from Paul Smith last year, and kept 4 pullets out of that batch. I got first a cock and a pullet, then added Max and another pullet later, from Clif Redden. These chicks are all crosses between those two lines - which is pretty safe, since Clif got his start from Paul. So, this could be considered a distant line breeding.
At my first double show with Max, he went Champion Large Fowl, Reserve Champion Large Fowl, 2x CH AOSB, and 2015 SE District Champion Ameraucana.
I can't think straight😀
