    I just received word from Dick Horstman that he could not ship today.

    A devastating blow to "getting the flock out of here, part 2 - the mother lode"

    No Heritage RIR
    No Silver Dorkings
    No Blue Orpingtons

    Honestly, I dont think I will ever get those RIR.

    Thanks guys

    Its just frustrating, I ordered paid for them over a month ago. Followed up with emails.

    The guy may breed some of the highest quality birds around but I wont be getting them this trip.

    I still have buff, lavender and lemon cuckoo orps coming so the breed is represented well.

    I turned down some heritage New Hampshires because I was committed to Dicks RIR and did not want to have to make it hard for Bernie to separate them.

    it's clear that you just can't have RiR's in the Philippines OZ
    next time talk to Viv
    she has high quality RiR's
    i'm sure she will set you up with some for a few bucks

    Shame I can't get mine to you. I have a gorgeous little RIR cockerel at about 3 weeks old. We can't keep him for too much longer. HE is in my AVI, called Milo.

    Shame, I don't think we could get a live bird out of this country, let alone into another one. Would be pretty cool to know he was "Mr International Rhode Island Red", Philli population....1!

    I am sure you will get there buddy.
