    so i'm thinking about getting a couple of these awesome looking birds, mainly just as pets. I've checked out the breeder directory and didn't see anyone that has these eggs avail. anyone know anyone around here that i can PM to get a hold of some eggs?

    they are awesome looking birds.

    Mibotsu, if you can't find anyone that breeds them here, you could always try McMurray Hatchery. They have Tennessee Red eggs. Years ago I bought Tennessee Red eggs from them and the hatch rate was good, the birds were all healthy and I was happy with the shipping.

    I have weaned them all down to a few females only as there was WAY too much fighting between the males. Some folks say they are not aggressive, but mine would liked to have killed each other!! Girls only now.

    Good luck!
