Ok, so, I kind of gave up on the whole top line Australorp thing, just couldn't talk the hubby into buying me some Hedemoras, so I pulled the trigger and ordered a few Silver Laced Wyandottes and Partridge Plymouth Rocks. I'm hoping the Rocks aren't as aggressive toward birds that aren't "them" as their cousins the Barreds are. Anyone had any experience with Partridge Rocks? I actually wanted to order a different color Wyandotte (like the color created here in WI) but they were sold out already. I'm thinking if these Rocks turn out to be real snots I can sell them to my neighbor lady and order the Golden laced or maybe even the blues, in the fall.
I had two partridge rock hens. The last one passed last fall.
They were great!
