Thank you for responding. I want to get into the heritage birds for basically the same reasons as you do. There are 3 or 4 breeds that I would like to try my hand at breeding. But what I mostly want to do is have a flock of pure breed heritage birds that will make pure breed heritage mutts. I know that you can't really call them pure breeds because they are mixed. But imo if the rooster is a pure bred heritage bpr and the hen is a pure bred heritage blrw then the chicks are going to be beautiful pure bred heritage mutts. Does that make sense to anyone but me. I don't know maybe my thinking is way off base. Other than a few breeds that I know are definite I'm gonna have I can't make up my mind what I want to end up. Someday maybe I will have some of all the breeds that I have on my wish list. I'm glad to hear the positive feedback on the breeders that I had mentioned. I did place a order for spring chicks from one of them. So come this spring I will be getting Isbars, Bredas, Light Sussex, Coronation Sussex and Swedish Flower Hens. I can't wait. We live near Columbia City in Northern Indiana. I would be very interested in possible going in on a an order with you depending on when you are wanting to place it. I really need to wait until spring before I get anymore. I would be willing to meet you half way. Just let me know and maybe we can work something out. I hope to be able to go to the Nationals in Ohio this year but don't know if we will be able to.
