    I'm guessing these are the ones used for tying flies or putting in girl's hair? Out of curiosity, where did you find them. There have been several posts on here of people looking for them and I don't have a clue where to look for them.

    yes they are the ones for fly tying and hair extensions, my friend has been breeding them for about two years now as you said they are extremely rare he got his stock from the Theriault line out of Maine, he never sells any but this is my luck year he has a trio of each color for me, The hens are allready laying so i might have some eggs to sell time will tell. i will post some picturs when i get home with them tonight
