    Ok, so I'm gonna post something similar in the CO thread, but figured I'd hit both places in case there are people paying attention to one but not the other [​IMG]

    I'm looking to raise some Bourbon Reds next spring and wondered if there was in anyone in CO who was raising them who I could get chicks from? I'd like to raise them, not just grow and butcher.
    Thanks!

    I've got some very nice Bourbons and from the looks of things I'll be overrun with hatching eggs and/or poults this coming spring.

    I think it's the standard 10% referral fee in this particular case. Thanks Steve.

    sure you don't want some Auburns, located in CA??? I have a this year's quad... plus an extra tom... ready to rock in the spring. From Porter's stock.

    Quote:lol, the problems with that are
    a. i don't want full grown birds
    b. i don't want to ship if i don't have to, had a bad experience with shipped youngs this past spring/summer
    c. how are they compared to bourbons? near as I can tell bourbons are the right size for our small family, are pretty enough to suit us both, and are good at being raisable and raising themselves
