With several comments about finding it hard to obtain good quality Brabanters, has anyone purchased from Sandhill? Where have you found good quality stock? If our town changes it's regs, this is...
I like everything about it except how it looks right now. I know it lays decently. It is a great part of my great waterfowl flock.
First, watching a runner duck run is awesome. They can find their own food. They aren't like pekins in water. Mine haven't started laying but I heard their decent.
Its not as fat and slow as a pekin, but its not frail either. I want a mallard but I don't want a flying bird. The rouen is great for that.
They are my calmest birds and are easiest to catch. They eat less than Pekins. I heard they also lay well, but mine are younger.
Anyone have any idea what breed she is? - Page 2post #12 of 211/24/12 at 9:15ampost #13 of 211/24/12 at 9:19amQuote:

Your second photo after the plymouth barred Rock (red/white feathers) she looks like a Lohmann Rhode Island Red. I just picked up three that look exactly like her (although REALLY rough) from a closed down farm.
The Lohmann are a hybrid bird.
"Lohmanns are most peoples first choice when they think of a hen, and it is easy to see why. Fantastic layers (they will lay practically every day, 365 days a year) easy to tame, and very friendly and inquisitive.
The Lohmann is a Rhode Island Red crossed with a Light Sussex. They are known by a few other names - warrens, (Omlet call them gingernut rangers). They have a deep breast, neatly tucked wings and an upward pointing tail. The legs are featherless and are pale yellow. They have 4 toes. The comb is a medium size and the face is smooth and red with medium wattles and earlobes. The Lohmann is a prolific egg layer and lays large brown eggs. They are placid, friendly and inquisitive. They are also exceptionally easy to tame and will follow you around when you are in the garden. They are hardy birds who are very happy free ranging and love to forage. They make excellent pets for children due to their gentle nature and friendliness. "

I just purchased a chicken today that has EXACTLY the same coloring. The gentleman I purchased her from raises his chickens from eggs. He said our hen was a cross between a Rock and a Rhode Island Red. I am not sure what type of Rock. I have never had any of that breed so the name didn't stick with me., I only processed the word ROCK. At any rate, although I have only had her a day and she is still in solitary until she can be released to the general population (which is only two others as we are residential chicken owners) she is very very timid and seems very sweet. She will either stay on my arm or stay close to where I put her on the ground. Hope that she will be a good pet as that is what we keep our chickens for (as well as for eggs, flower fertilizer, and to mulch our leaves).
