    Yeah..he has Rusty Slates listed under " Other Color Combo". Like to never have found him.

    I'm surprised JJ can produce the Barred pattern. I need to figure this out...

    I raise my Turkeys with my chickens too, and then I throw in the guineas just to make them all tough..

    They hang together, except for Blackie who use to be just fine but all of a sudden they seem to hate him. Makes no sense.
