New Hampshire Breed for Exhibition & SOP - Page 5

post #41 of 43
Hello everyone. I know this is a older thread. However I was still
able to get some of my questions answered off it so I wanted to give it a
bump. I do have a question regarding egg production of the German line.
Do any of you notice any difference in egg production between the German lines and
the American line? I say American meaning our New Hamps in America prior to
the reintroduction of the German line... I hope that makes sense.

One thing I don't understand is what is the hype about German new Hampshire? They are not true APA should a judge even place them. They only appear to meat SOP but they are not they are not a true DP. They are not actually meaty. I personally think it is an insult to theNH which is not a European breed, it is an American breed.Their are truly still breeders who have NH that actually are able to process at 12wks being 6\7lbs live weight.you can't get that from a German

What weight did you get the German line to in 12 weeks when you raised them?
