    I want a pumpkin haulsey. I have some haulsey hens, but no rooster. I may be interested in something else to cross with them if anyone has any ideas.

    thanks, Cory

    if you can't find a pumpkin hulsey, you may also want to try yellow birchens, they're the same color. try looking on one of the auction sites like oakridgegamefarm or gamerooster.

    Well, I looked at the three sites above and I could only find a haulsey hen, but that is further than I was when I started. I guess my hens are crossed with something else because I only have one hen that lookes like she is full haulsy. The other hens have the right color only on there belly side. All the other feathers aredarker.

    Does anyone have any yellow birchen roo or srag for sale? They do look similar.

    Or any game roo or stags that looks like this. Also I have one hen that lookes exactly like this.

    Quote:not all the hens will show that rich pumpkin color. not all cocks of that line will come out colored like the pics you've posted either. there is variation. just out of curiosity, what's your price range? might be able to lead you to someone if you're in the right price range.

    Hey OKchickenfarmer head on over to the OKie thread there are a few people there that may be able to help.

    https://www.backyardchickens.com/forum/viewtopic.php?id=23736&p=242

    I have heard something about these birds in the last 2 days but I have so much chicken, rabbit goat stuff going on I can't seem to remember where on which board.

    Quote:well i wish ya luck on the one in the brooder box. even with a lot of folks getting out of gamefowl now i wouldn't bet you'd be able to find one for that kinda money. sometimes you can though. first games i had i got lucky and got them for about $6 a piece right after oklahoma outlawed it. other then that pretty much any gamefowl i've bought the cocks have run between $100-200. i'd like to help ya out, but i don't raise pumpkins.

    if it helps, try doing searches for pumpkin whitehackles, greek fires, and canary birchens. it'll expand your search while keeping you within the color you're after.

    I'll pm ya a site to look at a feller that raises birchens....you probably ain't in the right price range, but you'll get to see what color the birchens bring to the table. If ya contact someone, don't talk price, talk chickens...you may just make a friend and have fowl coming your way for alot less. An excellent way to learn how to better care for your gamefowl too, getting an experienced chicken mans tips and tricks...good luck with your search....
