    I have one roo from Chris McCary and a roo and hens from Dave Puthoff. My understanding would be that they have Brown, Urch , ALBC, and other,

    I have a hen from Dave and she is one of my favorites. A little small for standard(about 5 lbs) but she is a great layer and has very nice eggs. 2 oz mostly, once in a while a bigger double yolk, 4-5 days a week, with orange yolks, everyone loves her eggs. She is broody right now, this is the first time, she is about 14 months old.

    I have several broodies myself right now. I think I am going to breed a broody line. It is supposed to be inherited. It will be intesting to see if I can get a line that is really "broody".
