    Anyone have any info on this breed?
    If there is a thread for them, sorry I was not able to find it.
    If not, hopefully this will be the start.

    Congratulations!
    I was beginning to think no one is interested in the breed.
    Please post pictures, I would love to see them!

    Unfortunately it didn't work quite as expected. They arrived-two tiny chicks (2-weeks-or less) in OH with no heat pack and the pullet was already dead. They will send a replacement, I'm sure, but it was very disappointing.

    So sorry to hear, I hope your replacement pullet arrives safe and sound.
    Wish you the best.

    I recently purchased 6 pullets and 4 roo's Beilefelder chicks. They are now nine weeks old today. They are beautiful and very sweet birds. Can anyone tell me at what age do they start to lay eggs? Thanks

    They should start laying between 6 and 8 months. Mine started laying at 6 months. Others didn't get any eggs until8 months.
