    Quote:I would say that he is Show Quality.
    He shows a lot of White feathers. In the tail, wing and hackels
    In New Hamshire's (like R.I. Red's and Buckeyes) one or more White feathers is a DQ.


    Quote:A lot has to do with breeding. New Hampshire's are like R.I. Red's and Buckeyes in that they are a Columbian colored bird that has the White covered up/ hidden be the Red color..

    Quote:Shannon,
    Mike John at Shady Lane Poultry has some good birds he all so has Poultryman's Supplies Company
    I don't think he has he as many a breeds that he had back 2 or 3 years ago but he does have a good selection of Heritage and Exhibition breeds.
    (When there was all that flooding in Indiana and here in Ohio a few years back he had lost a lot of his breeders and breeding pens. His farm was under a lot of water and it is good to see he up and running agin.)

    I e-mailed Mr. John (I was told his name was Matt, not Mike) at Poultryman's Supply last week about New Hampshires. I have not received a reply and the Shady Lane Poultry site makes no mention of New Hampshires currently being available.

    I'm guessing from your post, he isn't show quality....​
