I have been interested in breeding crevecours for a year now. I have had MM Hatcheries send me Crevecours three times but they all died. So if you know anyone who has any eggs, let me know. I would love to breed them and get them off the list. They are very pretty.

I have Delaware's I've been working on for a couple years. They're laying nicely now and I sometimes trade eggs from them.

I have Delawares.  I worked hard to find genuine heritage birds.  I think it should probably be noted that in spite of their being listed on the critical list (and rightly so), most hatcheries carry them.  For instance, you can obtain birds called "Delawares" from:

Murray McMurray
Cackle
Ideal
Hoffman
Meyer
Xtreme Game Birds
Double R Supply
Privett
Stromberg's
My Pet Chicken
and others...

However, the quality and authenticity of some of these hatchery birds has come in question among serious breeders.  It's the same with some of the others.  It's hard to find genuine heritage birds but worthwhile if you do...
