    They are getting to be very much like hatchery chicks. They dont cull chicks like serious breeders do.

    I have some Indian Runner ducks from them that are better than your average hatchery quality. Not show quality by any means, but better than you'd get from someplace like McMurray or Ideal.

    I dunno about their chickens though. So I guess I'm no help! [​IMG]

    Sand Hill is just a hatchery with a fancy name.. To me all there preserving is "hatchery Stock" and not what the true breed should look like...
    If you want SQ you need to buy from a good breeder. What breeds are you looking for?
