    From time to time I have commented on post concerning this breed. I have contacted someone I use to correspond with when I raised these birds. My main comment has always been about egg size. Hatchery birds lay very small eggs, while the breed was originally bred to be a good egg producer as well as a meat bird (duel purpose).

    Here are 3 breeders that raise birds to the above standard.

    "I can tell you that my birds lay a largish white egg and are prolific egg layers!! "

    This person may not still be there, but I personally purchases hatching eggs and live birds from him, they were excellent, best SB I have ever seen.

    I have no idea what they would charge for their birds.
