    Has
    anyone heard of these? Does anyone have any? Are they as good as they claim? If they are what they say they are, they sound like the bomb. They are a bit pricy, though.

    I tried google. No pics that I could find. I couldn't find any on feathersite either.

    I would assume they are some sort of hybrid. That's why feathersite doesn't have anything on them.

    This was on the same page as the link : (yes- they are a hybrid)
    Recipe For A Braggs Mountain Buff
    Mi thoroughly a combination of about 40 percent Rhode Island Red or derivatives of Rhode Island Red (e.g. "Production Red", "Cherry Egger", "Red Star", "New Hampshire Red"), 20 percent Buff Rock, 10 percent Black Langshan, 10 percent Light Brahma, 10 percent Buff Orpington. For the remaining 10 percent season with traces of Barred Plymouth Rock, Jersey White Giant, White Leghorn, and Black Australorp to create a truly "All American Chicken". Spend the next eighteen years picking the most handsome and vigorous individuals for breeding purposes, while at the same time selecting for a golden buff feather color. Using an egg scale, choose only the very largest and highest quality eggs for the incubator. Then you will have your own replica of a Braggs Mountain Buff!

    The alternative, of course, is to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase chicks from the original flock of Braggs Mountain Buffs.

    If you read the page thoroughly you'll see they describe how they created these birds using Rhode Island Red or derivatives of Rhode Island Red (e.g. "Production Red", "Cherry Egger", "Red Star", "New Hampshire Red"), Buff Rock, Black Langshan, Light Brahma, Buff Orpington, Barred Plymouth Rock, Jersey White Giant, White Leghorn, and Black Australorp...

    So this would be a breed of their own creation, if indeed it breeds true. Would be nice if they had included a "standard" or even a pic or two though [​IMG]

    I think I found them during a search a while back- they sound familiar. Never seen one in person, but I wouldn't mind adding a few to the layer coop [​IMG]
