Thought some might find it interesting.
I read the History of CL in the US.
In September 2010 the first shipment arrived. There were two groups, 1 rooster and 4 hens from one flock and a trio from another flock. After a bout of Mareks there was a trio left from the original 5 and one rooster from the trio. The trio (three remaining from the original 5) became the A line and the female offspring of line A were bred to the unrelated surviving rooster (from the trio) and became the B line.
In October 2011 a trio arrived. They became the C line.
In September 2013 they imported two pairs of Jill Rees CLs.
It was interesting and it certainly doesn't sound like an easy process importing birds.
