Honestly, I really enjoy just having my CLs around - they're awesome birds...

It would be very interesting and fun to see what the results of pairing that male with the two females would be, especially if you could definitely keep track of your hatch. (ETA meaning knowing which chick came from which pullet) Some while back, JR line had some ambiguous autosexing - and I think perhaps that has been cleared up. With mature birds you know for certain what you will be getting and you can select from ones you would hatch strong autosexing.
You never know exactly what sets of genes the parent birds will pass to offspring, what is recessive and hidden etc. I wonder if the seller knows/can tell you how closely related they are.
There are a lot of things I like about the middle pullet... and it would be interesting to see both paired with that particular male. The right pullet is also very nice...just cannot tell as much about her from the pict.
