    I'm sure pleased with these Bob. They are really nice. I sure did have one wonderful talk with Matt. He is one very nice person.

    I have some birds from Matt also. Recently hatched my first chicks from them. They are looking good. I will take some pictures tomorrow.
    My avitar is one of the chicks

    Did anyone on here get chicks from Paul Gingerich last year and if so could you tell me how they are doing in the egg production. Number of hens and how many eggs per week that you get.
    Thank you. These are the Mohawk's from Greg Chamness line. I'd like to know if it is the chickens or something that I am maybe not doing with them. All my chickens are doing just great except these and the 3 Horstman RC hens. Not really worth feeding. When I say terrible I mean terrible. I've not gotten a dozen egg in a month from these 6 hens. They are all a year old this month. Geez. They are fed exactly the same as my Nelson birds and my mixed layer flock.

    Even as they get older I notice most have very deep chests already and are more noticeable than the other breeds of chicks I have. They already have the brick shape.

    I definitely have this problem with my 3 hens. They look like they've been plucked. I will try what you said since I have both families. That will be next year though.
    Thanks

    I just could not pass up on posting this picture. Can't judge type of body etc but I just love this shot of his broad head. He is a 9 1/2 week old Underwood SC Cockerel
