    I'll post more pics tomorrow. The roo is just about a year old and has a nice, mottled chest, rust saddle and rust in his wings. He has dark hackles but has many white-tipped feathers on saddle and hackle and on every tail feather. The pullet is about 8 months. She has a lot of white but has a cute little type.. just like her buff columbian/mille cross momma. I believe these two will compliment eachother.

    I was thinking of keeping them but must make some room for a gorgeous trio Im expecting from Lynne in the Spring! so a roo has got to go.

    I may not be able ti ship for a while if buyer is north of WV. And we'll have to keep an eye on the weather for a good 2 day window for shipping south.

    Pick up would be great.

    here is a mlle/buff columbian cross hatched from Lynne's eggs. She is the mother of the pullet. She has great little type and I believe this pullet will look much like her once she is filled out.

    and this is the father of the pullet so this pair is of the same line but not directly related

    I also have a young trio for sale $25 They are only 3 months so I think these are just local pick-up

    1 pullet resembles her buff columbian cross momma and the other looks a bit off but should produce mf looking babies.

    the cockerel looks much like his dad (the rooster in the auction)

    They are beautiful! I really love that pullet she has amazing coloring. Wish I didn't promise myself just to have one breed and a few extra pullets.

    I would love to have these (all of them!) if you were only a bit closer. Don't want to ship but can't make a 16 hour drive (round trip). Argh.

    Anyone coming down this way at all? Chicken railroad? [​IMG]
