    Where did you get your Rhodebar stock from, Sheri?

    Oh I accumulated stock from all over the country - most of which turned out to not be true Rhodebars. I finally crossed a few cockerels to a couple of pullets that were decent, relatively speaking, and then kept the best cockerel and bred him to my best HRIR for my first generation F1s and went from there. This line will be totally off my own breeding and will include both SC and RC. The Rhodebar Breeders Club of America fb page and the Rhodebar Thread here on byc have tons of information about how several of these lines are being developed.

    Don't need to get any more chickens at this time, but thanks, I'll check some of those out.

    Oh I wasn't implying you should get any. These birds will not be available for sale for several more generations. ;-)

    LOL. It took me some time to figure out who you were, the name red ridge was so familiar and then I saw your website.

    ;-) I knew who you were immediately. Many things gave it away.
    Same with purplehen. East TN is too small not to know everyone.

    LOL. I also knew that there weren't many rc rir or rhodebar breeders around here.

    Or very many of us crazy enough to milk wet animals when it's only 35 degrees. Glad I'm only milking one right now. ;-)
