    I'm thinking about getting two more poults from the feed store to total four for an eventual breeding program, BUT they store only knows they are "bronze" not if they are standards or BBB...

    So should I get them, or should I wait and see what they actually are? But by that time they will be gone.... [​IMG]


    What to do what to do!?!?!

    I'm in San Diego, what are Bourbons, don't think I've ever seen them.

    I just looked up Bourbon Reds on Porters... is that what they are? They are very pretty!!!
