    Are these guys good quality birds? There are both 19 weeks old, and the hen just started laying.

    I want to breed them for myself next spring because I love the breed. Please be honest. [​IMG] I'll try and get some better pics later.

    From what I can see they don't look bad but the way they are posed doesn't show their type at all.

    They look a little "lean" which they should be of Hamburg stature LOL! Either it is the heat or molt.

    I've got bantams and they don't look like that...and mine came from the stock of Jim LaGendre out in OR. Terrific guy!
