    It was minus 6 here about 3 years ago for about 3 days and they did fine. I feed them corn in the winter to increase body fat and another breeders blend supplement and they seem to do well.

    Put me in for a max bid of $20. It doesn't say what shipping is, I'm assuming around $15 for priority mail?

    The new site auctions are a you bid one at a time, there is no proxy bid. So, are your bidding $20 now?

    2 quick Q's for you regarding this breed:
    if these birds are crossed w/ a Rock roo will the resulting offspring be similiar in type to the cornish cross broilers sold by the hatcheries and in the farm store in the spring. I'm wanting to try this cross but need 20 eggs to fill my incubator. Also how is the personality of this breed- laidback or agressive- quiet/noisy. Thanks for your time!

    No the CX takes many generations to perfect. The carcass is actually better by itself than crossing it with DP birds. They just take longer to get to weight but will not be as full as a CX.

    Cornish are way laid back. One of the easiest to tame for showing that I know of except maybe a silky. They are not noisy but they do talk softly like murmurring especially in the evenings.

    He said to post our max bid, which doesn't quite seem right but with this new forum everything is messed up. Minimum bid is $10.00, if I bid $20 and nobody else bids then do I pay the $10 or the $20?
