    Hey there!!!!!!! [​IMG] Thank You for the complement. My blacks are good breeders, but as you can see(I think), the combs are messed up. I will not be breeding Freddy to the females though. I am getting another roo to breed to them. The females have wonderful cushions.

    Kay is 9 months old. I was going to show her last fall but was afraid she might catch an illness at the show so I didn't. I will be breeding them in the spring and then I will have a limited amount of eggs available. This fall she was laying eggs almost every day, so I hope she does this spring too. [​IMG]

    Can't really tell about Freddy's comb but it looks ok to me. Your frizzle boy is nice...how old is he? His comb looks fine too. Keep me in mind re: eggs. I don't mind if they are refrigerated for 7-10 days while you collect them prior to shipping. I refrigerate all the eggs that I hatch...I think it keeps them fresh...and they all hatch at the same time!! [​IMG]

    If you decide you want some outcrossed babies, I'll send you some eggs too.

    Quote:Freddy has a messed up comb from a fight he got into, but I don't like his tail so I am breeding them to another male. Freddy is my best pet chicken though so I will never get rid of him. Bear is about 9 months too. I am not much for the frizzle, but he is all I have for blue roos. Luckilly they won't all be frizzed. lol

    I am so glad that I can finally share some pictures [​IMG]

    I will definetly keep you in mind for eggs.

    Oh they are beauty's for sure! I LOVE that frizzle! Still no eggs from beauty [​IMG] I really don't think she will lay until spring now. ALthough having them in the heated coop where they have 64 degree heat and lots of light may help [​IMG] I'm hoping!
