    Looking for standard/large show quality or from hobby breeders who bred for good type.

    Extra large or jumbo size especially desired, even if not "show bred".

    Flexible on color.

    If your looking to buy them in a MINIMUM of 25, then I would suggest Ideal-poultry, McMurray hatchery.. etc on the "big" hatcheries. If you're looking for ordering from a breeder, then I can't help you there, sorry.

    There are eggs on ebay right now for standards. I like the banty size much more. Also if you look at the pics the person posted the one is a little funny looking. Jenn

    Linck, appreciate the suggestion. Hatchery source is an option but it's the last option if I don't find a private breeder with the type I want. I'm open to a hatchery IF their stock gets to extra large-jumbo size.. as in roosters reach 9-10 lbs or more. I noticed McM listed their roosters as weighing up to 8 lbs.. that seems smallish to me.

    Many years ago I had two roosters, one was 11 and the other 13lbs, did not weigh the hens but they were quite large and heavy(guessing they may have been 9 lbs), laid huge eggs. Quite regret not having bred & kept more of them- thought that was typical of the breed but a couple years ago, got a few from a hatchery when mine died from old age etc.. and they were half the size of what I had.. that was disappointing! That(and the weight listed by McM) is the only reason I haven't ordered from a hatchery already.. 25 chicks is absolutely no problem if they were what I wanted. If I could get birds like my first ones, I would be a VERY happy man..

    Stormhorse, Oh you will have fun with them! And yes they are beautiful! They are so easy to hug and hug and kiss and pet and pet and name them George.....

    jkcove, Thanks, I saw that auction, they kind of look smallish to me. They did the pictures pretty cute though. I like the bantys a lot also, I do plan on looking into banty stock in the future.. just am all about getting ones like I used to have in the past right now.

    I love naked neck chickens I've also heard of them being called turkens. I am also in the market for some if anyone in Indiana has any.[​IMG]

    Kev, I have Blue, Black and Splash, but it will be about mid Feb. before I will be offering very many eggs from them for sale. I am also going to try selling some day old chicks this year if you want to go that route. My birds are larger than hatchery stock not sure on their weights but I would say my hens weigh 8 to 9 lbs and the roosters will go 10 or better, haven't weighed them so thats just a guess.
