    I've got buff Rocks on order, so I've been reading everything I can find on the breed. That's how I discovered there are also Columbian PRs and Silver-Penciled PRs, neither of which I have ever seen. Is anyone breeding them who could tell me a bit about them? I'd love to see some pixs and hear about how well they lay or any other information. Does anyone know of a source for either color?

    I had been planning to order some Partridge PRs, but I am fascinated by the idea of these 2 colors.

    Thanks!

    I have silver penciled rocks that I got from McMurray, but they are just teen-agers, so they have that punk rock look. If they ever grow up, Ill post pictures.

    How do they compare, size-wise, to the barred ones? I'd love to hear about them. I checked out McMurray's site just now and I am soooo curious about the silver penciled ones! They have a sketch but no photos. Any pix that I've found online are likely Wyandottes because they have rose combs, so I've never really seen any REAL rocks in that color!

    I'd LOVE to see pix!

    All of the Plymouth rocks will be generally speaking the same size and conformation, just a different color/pattern.
