    These are from Blehm stock and I have selected heavily for conformation and coloration. I am delighted to say they lay like mad and are a delicious meat bird at 18 weeks.

    I can honestly say the temperament is unlike any other bird I've had, and when I realized I'd be culling a dozen or more roos, I tried to remain removed...but they were so friendly it was impossible! They talk and want to be held, and are super-curious.

    Our winters are very rough and these birds live for the outside regardless of precipitation or snow on the ground, and yet they did exceedingly well with our triple-digit summer despite humidity in the 80% range.

    Super birds. Fertility is excellent, and I'm hatching lovely chicks!

    This is the first time I've offered any eggs for auction, and I'm not sure how often I'll do this, but I encourage you to give them a try.

    I forgot to post that I'm NPIP Certified, and I ship in specially made foam.

    Here are a few better pics- It's impossible to convey the richness of the coloring.

    Hi, I'm looking at your auction and am wondering what your average dressed weight at 18 weeks is?

    Thanks!
    That's a great question! My roos dressed out at an average of 5.5#, and the folks who processed them were jealous, because their meaties didn't look so nice! The fat is almost non-existent, and the legs are very long and not at all skinny. I was very impressed with how tender the meat has been, because I thought the lean-ness might lead to tough meat, but not at all.

    I get a good, rich stock, too, despite the scant fat. I don't know if it's because they range, or that I feed lots of extras, but it's really the best I've had yet.

    The feathers are a close, hard form, so they actually pluck quite well, too.

    Cheers,

    Renee​
