    Quote:Then just show the pullets and not dub the males. For the most part it is the pullets that win the most except when it comes to BB reds. They are the easiest to train and show also.
    The only problem you will have is when they start to lay they don't show as well

    are they "game"? and really fragile? They don't do good in cold either, right?

  10. I have Lavender Moderns. I love them, my parents love them. They are like little pigeons or something. They are not too game, the Roos I have seldom squabble with each other, although they were raised together, that could make a difference. They are bright, inquisitive, friendly and very sweet. They make excellent pets.
