    I have Bert's brothers, they are huge. They are CX over Rainbows if you want one you can have it. They are all barred with some bleeding, the only one that did not come out barred is Bert Jr.

    Have you ever done rainbow over rainbow or did your rooster die too soon? Can't remember what you said.

    No, I was going to but my Rainbow rooster bit the big one before he had a chance. Based on how Bertha lays eggs, I am tempted to skip all the fancy breeds at some point and just have CX over Rainbows, they are a true dual purpose bird and with the increased body mass they seem to tolerate the cold, like it is not there. As they said earlier my concern is heat in Summer.
