This is true. I got some Rose Comb Rhode Island Whites from a gal who got them from Sand Hill. I called and emailed Sand hill to see if they knew of a line these birds may be from and I never heard from them and this was a few years ago.

dont know of anyone that does too much ordering thru the mail. Especially SH.

Totally agree. I run into those kind of problems. Let's keep in contact, in return I can get you more business with family and friends.

I ordered 50 birds from them this year.  We got Salmon Favs, Blue Jersey Giants, RIR, and some variety Wyandottes. When they get here and start growing I will update you all with the pictures and how it goes.  So far they have been great.  Like a post I read earlier they are a small group that only try to hatch birds to standard not mass production.  Quality takes time and patience.

I would be interested in seeing how their Faverolles turn out, if you wouldn't mind posting some pictures.

My Rhode Island Whites came from Sand Hill  (several years ago)  and I have been very happy with them

I'm very pleased with the white jersey giants I got from sandhill last summer. They're getting huge, makes the red sussex look small.




Cockerel only weights 8lbs a couple weeks ago, but won't be a yr old until July.

Pullet top right is bigger than the sussex cockerels, same age.
