    For your consideration are 12 + hatching eggs from my Columbian Rock LF flock. My birds originated from a flock in Canada and I obtained them in Nov 2010. I hatched over 80 this past year and kept only the best 9 pullets and 5 cockerels.

    Are they "show quality"??!! I don't really know, but I have been encouraged by several long time Rock breeders to begin showing my best few. I recently donated a pair (cockerel and pullet) to a silent auction that was held at Crossroads and they brought $75, and they were purchased by a Rock breeder who's been in the business 30+ years.

    They ARE extremely rare in the US and I consider myself very fortunate to have a flock going here in the deep south.

    I have already hatched 18 that are in the brooder now and will be hatching for myself all fall and winter. I am not certain how many of these I will be able auction after this one.

    Here are a couple of pictures, taken today, of the flock all together. Also, the rooster in the link is the grandfather to this flock. He is the "Canadian daddy" to the trio I started from.

    I will plan to ship these on Monday, Dec 12. Please let me know if you have any questions and Merry Christmas!

    Whoever gets these - CHERISH THEM! Scott has worked super hard on his flocks, and fertility/hatchability is excellent. I just had a close friend hatch some off for me (my bator was full, and I REALLY wanted some of these beauties!) - the hatch went off like clockwork, all hatched today, day 21, all are fat & healthy, hatched quickly & without issue! THANKS, SCOTT for the wonderful opportunity to have some of these beauties here in Michigan! Oh, I should also say packaging was excellent, as well (but I guess that was obvious, having had such a good hatch!!!)
