I had said earlier than I wanted some, so I sent for 15 of them from Ideal, to arrive in June.

A more useless thing I cannot imagine, but I just like the look, and I can picture them scooting about all over the place.

I got some Black Sex Links to make it a little more useful; they should start laying in December.

They sound nice. Post some pics when you get them. Who says you can't have chickens just for the enjoyment! I am thinking of getting some Buttercups just because I like how the females look and think they would look nice in my yard lol.

I asked for Lemon Blues. However, last year when I sent for them, they did not get a good hatch, so I didn't get them. So this time, I said that if they did not have enough Lemon Blues hatch out, just substitute Blues.

So I hope I get them this time. I sent for 15. Surely with 15 I should get a pretty nice mix of male and females.

I notice that they kind of hedge about whether they will fight or not, but my birds free range, so I am hoping that they will not fight. Do yours fight? What colors do you have?

How fun! I never thought I liked Moderns, and then I saw them in real life for the first time at the PPBA Stockton show and I was surprised that I found them rather charming! I even almost bought one at the sale barn, haha. Good luck, and post pictures when they arrive!

Just the birchens here. I'd love to have blues or lemon blues.
Mine will run away instead of fighting. I think they've long since had the 'game' bred out of them (if they ever had any to start with. I *think* they were bred to be an exhibition bird).
June will be here soon!

Thanks for that pic, Lisa.

Yeah, see, those would never do as anything remotely useful. Maybe for *sport,* as they remind me of Asils.
Or to laugh at after a few beers - oh wait, that is what Naked Necks and Showgirls are for.

They seem kind of pointless, really, but hey... to each his own. The little cockerel is kinda tough lookin', aint he?
