    Mine are doing well. Trying to grow them out so I can figure out who to keep for breeders.

    I just noticed your tagline, Big Medicine, do you raise cornish as well?

    Quote:He said one time that his dad raises standard White Cornish and he said those SL Brahmas originally started from a White Cornish X SL Cochin that came out looking similar to a Brahma.

    Quote:My Dad raises large fowl whites. I always enjoyed visiting with Mr. Strait, and thought it a great line. Actually all of my birds carry Lewey's Cornish blood, and they have all been hatched in Lewey's old incubater for the past several years, so I like to think he's had a hand in it.

    OK, not the best day for photos, too bright and the birds were having too much fun crow hopping around and wanting to dust or preen.

    The makings for some blue columbians, need to replace this cockerel, he never developed a head to go with that body.
