I also talked today with my contact in Michigan and he told me Tim Bowles of Ohio has New Hampshire. He is a very good breeder and the one who knows where most chickens are in the mid west.
I talked to Frank Good Fellow today on the phone from Canada and he says there are no New Hampshires worth a hoot up there.
I did get a welcome supprise he is going to enter a trio of Columbian Plymouth Rock at the Ohio National and I should be able to get them a one way ticket to North Carolina for Yard full of Rocks.
Will be a nice Christmas present for him as he wants so badly to work with this breed.
Hope this helps some of you. I still plan to get some new Hampshire eggs this spring from Kansas. This strain is about 30 years old. Then when I get them going I will share them with anyone who wants this old breed.
I also have some Rhode Island Reds those dark kind coming to me in young breeders and eggs. Will be able to provide in a year or so the old Mohawk line that I use to raise 8 years ago.
Mission success maybe. bob
I beg todiffer, with Frank, I have seen NH's from ON, this year.... The Best i have seen, NOT hatchery i know that much. The cockerel won Best in show! the pullet got reserve. I am going to get some NH's from this breeder next year.
