    They are young but are from green fire farms. Anyone else have any? You can see pics on my website at www.bishopschickens.com. I think we lucked out and have 2 roos and 6 pullets! They are an interesting bird for sure. They are more friendly than other gamebirds we have tried in the past. Anyone else have any experience with them?

    I'd be interested in hearing more about yours as they grow. They're on my wish list. Almost got some this year but didn't have time to build a separate coop for them.

    Keesmom,
    I will post pictures as they grow so if you would like there is an option to sign up to my website and get updates. They should be laying in spring (late).

    We actually ended up getting rid of these birds. Had to cut back this summer and they just seemed to bring out the "wrong crowd" when we tried to sell chicks so we said no thank you to this breed.

    I had also heard that GFF hulseys were not game, which takes away from what Pumpkin Hulseys are supposed to be, therefore rendering them a pretty lawn ornament.
