    Thanks for looking! [​IMG]

    Edited to add: These are proving to be some of the sweetest, curious and non aggressive birds I've ever had!

    They are beautiful. I am so envious. I had a pair but lost my pullet a few weeks ago. I just have my lonely little roo now. I miss her so badly.....she was a sweetie.

    Thanks everyone! I really can't say enough good about this breed. Haven't eaten any yet but I guess theyre sposed to be #1 table fowl in UK so should be good!

    There was some feathering in the legs of a few I got from Paul Bradshaw but I'll be trying to breed that out.
