i never said they are not cute or useful, I just said I DON"T raise them although others might. nothing snooty about it. it's just not what I raise. I DO raise Paint silkies, Khaki silkies, blacks, whites, blues, splash, as well as sizzles and large fowl blue laced red wyandottes, working on lavender wyandottes and a few orpingtons. I don't really need to spread myself any thinner then that.
