    Everyone is entitled to an opinion, though I often have trouble figuring out what yours really are. In your post before this one, were you trying to make an opinion on the color of my last picture of the cockerel I posted on this thread?

    On the same subject of opinions of color, here are two pictures of one of the sires used to get the hatching eggs and chicks you have sold here as large fowl, breeder quality Cornish in dark, white laced red, and blue laced red. Do you have a more recent picture, and what color did he end up as in your opinion?

    Here is another sire you used or are using, what color is he in your opinion? Is your opinion that he and the above bird will work well as sires for the white Cornish that you mentioned you or your other half want to try getting off them?

    I know those two are a mix of Cochin, Brahma, Wyandotte, and Cornish. If it sounds to you like I have created some mutts by putting a WC over some DCs and ended up with bleed showing on their offspring, and since you have previously said you would hate to call these birds or their offspring anything other than breeder quality Cornish, I am confused as to what your opinion of the definition of 'mutt' is. Can you explain please?

    I just talked to him, but didn't ask how many he has out. He usually hatches a lot and with the ABA national here in cali in Jan, I'm sure he hatched a bunch. There should be 200 or more bantam Cornish in that show.

    I read in the ICBA newsletter that he had some bad luck with his LF and I was hoping to talk to him about getting some of his culls but it is not likely he will have any. Are you referring to Stockton?
