    Hey everybody, do any of y'all know where I can get some decent Q cream legbar chickens/hatching eggs? I know Greenfire Farm(s?) has some, but they're uh, out of my price range.

    Any input would be great, thanks y'all!!

    They were the first and only ones who have imported them into the USA. The price is high because the costs of importing them and purchasing them. I would much rather buy from Paul at Greenfire Farms because you know your getting good stock.

    Yeah, I figured as much---though I was curious as to if anybody else had already gotten birds from his stock, lol.

    Just in case anyone is still interested. I e-mailed Greenfire farms today and asked for hatching eggs. They won't have any available untill the end of 2012. So much for that idea. [​IMG]

    If Greenfire has the only stock in the U.S. won't there be a HUGE issue with inbreeding pretty soon without any genetic diversity in cream legbar flocks here in the states that come from those birds?
