    A pumpkin colored game bantam that looks like the standard pumpkin Hulsey's!

    GENIUS!!! Somebody should really get to work on that one.
    I would definitely have to get some of those! [​IMG]

    Pumpkin Hulsey's are pricey and hard to get, but if I got some I would have to breed some down to a bantam size.

    That's just too great an idea! [​IMG]

    They are henny feathered ginger Wheatens. Just breed henny feathered OEG with Ginger Wheatens or Wheaten bred Black Breasted Red OEG bantam males, or Wheaten hens.
