    I need to downsize, baby on the way, in this group there will be 3 buff orp hens, 2 of them 3yrs old, still laying good and 1 of them 2 yrs old. The two of them (with black in her tail, Penny) is very broody, usually likes to raise a couple broods a year. The largest one (the 2 yr old, aka, Ginger) also broods very well. The last one (with white in her tail, Goldie) has never brooded but is the best of the orp layers, gave 6 to 7 eggs a week In her pullet year.
    Also included will be the Brahma flock, a sport of a new color, it was great for someone like me who liked to play around with genetics and experiment with new feather colors. One yellow Columbian Roo and his hens, a golden Columbian. The crosses from incubated eggs make a combination of more goldens, the pattern we term as dark for the brahma breed, as well as the beautiful yellow Columbian color. Have 3 hens, 2 yrs old and a pullet just hatched summer of 2013. Live in western PA

    I am very interested in them. But the timing isn't right for me right now (we are house hunting). When things get back to normal, I will pm you to see if you still have them. But in the mean time, I hope you find them a great home.

    yes, please let me know when you do, they are beautiful and if you are interested as a breeder, they are NPIP certified. Since I am a Serama breeder as well, all my birds are tested.

    ANYONE willing to take a FREEEEEEE Yellow Columbian Roo???? I have a few of them......I really do need to downsize and if I still have them by May, I am taking them with me to a buy/sell/trade in Uniontown, PA and who knows what will happen to them!!!! The hens will most likely get a new home as they provide eggs but for the Roos, its probably in the stew pot......[​IMG] I know its just their feathers are a beautiful color, but I don't really want to see that happen to them.....
