    Too bad they don't have muffs on those birds. Lovely color!

    Thanks, I like the rooster's clean neck. I don't really want muffs on mine. I have Citron Spangled Hamburgs from Dan too.

    What color is their skin? I see some have yellow beaks and some have pale beaks. Which is ideal? thanks.

    I guess we'd have to ask Dan what the ideal is. The comb my rooster has is very different from others too. I've never checked to see what color their skin is. I have a few eggs in the incubator and it will be interesting to see what they look like compared to the parents.

    I was curious someone mentioned that there might be an existing flock in ohio? Is this true and where in Ohio?
