    I am trying to get in touch with Kelly Cratty. He has the most beautiful Barnevelders and I was wanting to inquire about hatching eggs. I did find an email address but it came back as undeliverable.

    Any help would be great.

    Thanks

    Kelly Cratty,as I understand,is no longer in business. Apparently he had personal and health problems,both severe. That's too bad because he did have wonderful stock.

    I was supposed to get chicks from him last year and never could contact him again. I found out a few weeks ago about hs problems,so now I understand. I do have some chicks that I hatched out of eggs belonging to someone who has some birds from his line. I guess that's as close as I'll be able to get to his line.

    I have several little cockerills and would be willing to part with 1 or 2 if you are interested. They are about 2 months old. I am near Jackson, about 85 miles East of you.

    Gina, Thank you but I only have room for one rooster and Mr. Cornelius is here to stay. Do you think you may breed them
    ? If so I would love some eggs. There is a lady selling on E-bay that has great birds and they are from his lines so I may try to snag a DZ or so from her.

    Thanks Adam

    That's my plan,Adam. I got 2 pullets and 7 roos out of the hatch,just my luck. They look good though and I did need a few good roos. They are all feather shank.
