    Can anyone give me 2 good reasons they should not be culled?

    Cons...they can not be line bread, they have to many downsides, like splay leg, even though all the other colors are fine.

    One good reason would do the trick, but 2 would cement the deal. Anyone?

    Just one good reason would be fine....thanks!

    Why would you cull a tuxedo? I like the color.

    I actually sell tuxedo eggs, and I have more people buy whites and tuxedos than people buying jumbos british ranges, and bobs.

    Because they are really pretty...
    Because some people, like me, would be happy to pay a premium price when ordering eggs that were likely to produce a lot of tuxedos...

    I breed all the varieties, and not once do I get problems with the tuxedos.

    If you have a splay leg issue, you need to reconsider what you use for the bedding. I LOVE the tuxedos, Waiting for 150 to hatch (not like all are going to hatch but still [​IMG] ) Robo didn't you want some Tuxes from me?

    I was HAPPY to pay much more for assorted colors than for plain browns. I have several browns & can't tell them apart. I wanted birds I can tell apart, since mine are pets. Now I can name the little piglets...er coturnix...
