    Does anyone have any of Sandhill's Langshans or Sumatras (smooth or frizzled)? Were you happy with the quality of the birds?

    I would be interested in hearing about these birds too.
    I noticed the frizzle Sumatras on Sand Hills website and have been considering ordering a few. Would love to see pictures??!

    I've gotten frizzles from them twice. They are pretty good birds. I have a homozygous frizzle roo who was so ugly as a chick that I really wondered if he wasn't a turkey or something. He still isn't pretty, but all my others are good looking. You will get non frizzles, too, so order extra. I thought all hatcheries sent them mixed up just like they hatched, but then I got frizzle Cochin from Ideal. All of them were curly.

    I would prefer to get both frizzled and non-frizzle anyway, since you don't want any homozygous offspring.
