I don't post very much on this forum but I felt compelled to post because I am breeding and showing New Hampshires. Barred Rocker I'm not sure what your intentions are with your New Hampshires but if your incubating some of the German New Hampshire eggs I would not cross them with the birds that you have pictured above. I'm not sure if I am seeing the same pictures as everyone else but the birds you have pictured above are far from the standard. They look like standard hatchery birds to me. The hens are way to light for New Hampshires, they almost look like a buff colored chicken with red heads and hackles. They do not have any black in the tail and no ticking on the hackle. If you will just go to Google and click on images on the top and do a search for "New Hampshire Chicken" and scroll until you see some pictures that look like paintings you will see the proper color of a New Hampshire. The Cockerel's type is off as well. Like I said if you hatch some of the German line I would keep them pure and not cross them to your current line as that will only serve to dilute the German line and pull them down. Not trying to offend anyone, I'm just giving you my opinion.
