    Does Duane Urch have some Barred Hollands? He's a well-known breeder and I was thinking maybe he did. I know that jimmy47 used to have them, but he gave up all his birds due to health issues. He told me that some laid the proper white egg and some laid a beigey egg, but his came from Sandhill Preservation.

    Cool. I don't mind getting some that lay "off white" eggs, because I'll be working to perfect the breed over time. I just need a starting point.

    You could try Jim Hall 870-723-3724 or Jen Scott 870-644-3615. Both were at the big APA show in Indy this past fall. I saw Jen’s birds and they weren’t bad. Jim likely has some goods stuff.
