    Heard of them? Not yet you havent. I have been working with these birds for a while I will give a sneak peak tomorrow. They are white with single dun lace. Nice tight rose comb and great mothers hatching 4-6 clutches per year up to 32 babies!I will post picks tomorrow.

    Just by the description of the tight rose comb and dun lacing on white sounds like a dun laced wyandotte. I cant wait to see pics

    I'm working on a similar breed (similar in traits). I didn't originate it, but I'm it's only steward. I'm selecting only for hardiness and extreme broodiness in hens. Your's sounds hardier though because of the tight rosecomb. Mine has a single comb. I can't wait to see pictures. I'm always interested in new breeds.[​IMG]

    Her wing is not split wing it was just the way I was holding her. I really want to work on size now that I got color. I will get some pics of her free ranging ince the weather settles down. If I keep her from going broody I can get over 300 eggs a year from her.

    Can you tell us more about her traits? Is she indeed a good forager?
