    Hey all! I'm considering IDEAL Poultry's Production Black chickens for some crosses and I was wondering what your experiences with them have been. Do they lay well with relatively few health problems? Are they friendly? How much do they weigh? Please share your experiences and post pics of these birds if you have them.

    Also, for those of you who haven't owned these birds, IDEAL's Production Blacks are actually barred like Plymouth Rocks or Cuckoo Marans. They basically look like Cuckoo Leghorns. So if there's another "Production Black" out there, I didn't want you to get confused and give me different info [​IMG]

    Thanks!

    I had been wondering about Ideal's 'Production Blacks' as well. I may have actually had some males of the breed shipped as 'packing peanuts' with a small order--- the description is right.
