    Hi,
    I am new to the site and also fairly new to raising chickens. I've got a small flock of 10 at the moment. They are just shy of 3 months old. I have 15 Blue Laced Red Wyandottes coming in a few weeks. I'm very interested in finding some Genetic Hackle chickens or eggs for fly tying. Any help would be much appreciated.
    Cheers

    Hi and welcome to BYC! Blue laced red wyandottes are beautiful chickens, I would have some if they were more heat tolerant. What do you mean eggs for fly tying? I have never heard that before.

    There used to be an ad on the buy/sell/trade section for genetic hackle chickens. Might want to check there.

    Good luck, and welcome to BYC!

    lol. What I am trying to do is get some hatching eggs or chicks of Genetic Hackle chickens. They have the long slender hackles which are used in fly tying.
    Cheers

    I've heard some members mention that but, don't remember which thread. Ask in the searchbox genetic hackle chicks or eggs.

    Thank you. I had been lurking for awhile soaking up as much information as I could. Since I was a child, I've loved birds and always wanted to do chickens. I never had the opportunity until recently. Very happy to meet everyone. Cheers
