    I've been working on my blue slates for a while now and i want to bring in some fresh blood, i'm trying to work on size and carcas quality in addition to plumage... i've made good strides but want some fresh blood, everything i'm seeing around is too small. Can anyone point me towards a good source of heavy bodied large blue slates? Only thing ive seen that was promising was P. Allen Smith but i dont think he sells to general public and probably not hatching eggs at anyrate lol.

    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks
