    Looking to purchase a few of these as "straight run" in the spring and was wondering what everyone's experience was like, overall health, what the odds was on your straight run, and of course would love to see photos of how they turned out!!

    Welcome! I've ordered them from MMcM twice over the years, and been very happy with the birds. BUT they aren't going to be show quality, and I've had many splash rather than blue laced hens. Because of the genetics of blue in chickens, many will be splash, and they are beautiful too. My two current hens are very nice birds, large, pretty, and good broody moms. They produce blue laced chicks by my BC Marans rooster, very nice. I haven't kept any of the cockrels, just because they didn't fit into my flock plans. Mary
