    I'm interested in how Murray McMurray Hatchery's Sumatras turn out when fully grown. I'm considering adding a few to next year's order. I'm not asking about the show/standard quality of the birds, as any birds I do buy I intend to butcher, and tan their pelts/skins for use in some projects I am working on. What I'm asking about is feather quality, length, color, etc. How big are the birds? (When I say big, I'm talking how their body and bones are built, not muscle, as the meat isn't a priority). Is their body/tail length comparable to breeder birds? Pictures would be *fantastic*.
    Best regards,
    David22.
