    I am waiting on an order from Porters (they are late [​IMG]). I was told you had some; I have searched and have yet to come across anyone else breeding them aside from Porters.

    How do you like your Silver Auburn?

    I would love to see them [​IMG]

    I am really hoping Porters send mine out this week or next. It is dangerously hot here and it is only going to get worse as the weeks draw out.

    They are gorgeous and I am going nuts that mine still have not arrived from Porters. If they do not ship this week I will contact them. I just hope they aren't having a lot of trouble hatching one of the varieties on our order. I don't want a ton of substitutions. That was a $390 turkey order [​IMG]

    Poults. There was 24 in the order, 17 are for me and 7 more for a friend. We are having randomly mellow weather the past few days too so it would be a great time for them to ship!! I am eager to see pictures of yours. They look a great deal more reddish in color than the ones on Porters website. I wonder if that is just camera/lighting or what.
