    Not sure how to close this, these are gone. Got them as a test, they failed. Do not wish to continue in these but I can likely get you plugged in with people who can get you started.

    The crooked front toes I'm attributing to humidity issues. However they were hatched in the same conditions of hundreds(thousands) of other chicks of different breeds. So the front toes are likely due to strange humidity requirements. The duckfoot back toe I am fairly certain is a genetic problem. Even on feet that look relatively normal, they have the duckfoot toe. (Chick 2 shows this pretty well. Its toes in the front are normal)

    Adding more pictures, still plan to sell these but in no hurry. If you want time to think on them that is fine. I don't want them to go to waste. I will be keeping an ideal(not hatchery, ideal type for crossing) Buckeye Cockerel to cross with them if you want to take him as well.

    I know this is a long shot, but are you going to the Shawnee, OK show in December?
    I'd take them in a heartbeat, I have 12 Orloff girls that are pets.

    Are these still available? I am coming to the Cincy area in a couple of weeks. I could drive down and meet you somewhere close to pick them up.
