    I couldn't help myself! [​IMG] I have ordered 25 straight run mille fleur leghorns from Sand Hill Preservation!!! Yippee! [​IMG]

    But I can't find a picture of one anywhere! I know what a mille fleur d'Uccle bantam is (and have had them)... but I wanna see a leghorn millie!!!

    Anyone know? [​IMG]

    I considered ordering some last year, but I couldn't find a pic, either. Please post pics when you can--I'd love to see them.

    I think you will really have something there! If you'd consider selling a pullet, let me know!

    I wish they would put some pictures up of their breeds on their website.

    You, too, amazondoc? Cool! Have you seen a photo anywhere? What is your shipping date? If you get yours before I get mine, will you post photos please????

    I have an order in for 25 straight run day old chicks. I'm supposed to get them in late April... but the folks at Sand Hill march to the beat of a different drummer, so that date may be wiggly. There's NO way I want that many chicks... honestly the most pullets I can handle would be four. This was the only way I knew how to get them.

    So, yes, I will be selling the chicks I don't want/can't keep... I'll just charge whatever I'm paying per chick. I will be sure to post photos - as chicks, cockerels/pullets, hens and roosters.

    I'm just dying to see one of these birds!

    I think mine won't come til June or July. I'm piggybacking on somebody else's Sandhill order, so I don't have all the details.

    I *think* I saw some photos several months ago, but I don't know where they were. If I come across them again, I'll post it here!

    I LOVE THEM!!!!!! They're gorgeous! How old are they and are they all pullets? Did you get them straight run? How difficult was it to sex them? When were you able to tell them apart? Have they started to lay yet? White eggs... right?
