    Does anyone have these and do you like them? I ordered a few and was considering ordering a rooster. I thought these would make good meat roosters and layer hens. Do you have any pictures of them? I guess that I am just kinda excited about this new (to me) breed!

    I've had GL Wyandottes and they were one of my favorites. Not prone to frost bite as much as other breeds with their rose combs (males might because of their large wattles), pretty good layers as well. Roos are pretty stocky birds and would dress fairly well. I lost all of mine to predators (stinkin' foxes, no doubt) so I don't have pictures. I've also heard that they make decent setters too.
