Last year, I bought two Russian Orloffs from Ideal. One of them lasted 3 days, the other 3 weeks. They were extremely inbred. This year, I searched for a more reliable breeder. I found one, who confirmed that Russian Orloffs bought at hatcheries were indeed inbred, because they are a very rare breed and cannnot be directly imported from Russia. If anyone knows of a reliable breeder or hatchery whose chicks may not be so inbred, I would really appreciate it, because the breeder never got back to me. I know that Sandhill has them, but I am not sure if they are for sale. Would Sandhill's Orloffs be inbred?
