    Thank you. As for the Wattles, I personally like them the way they look but for showing they don't need to have such massive wattles. Of course it is kind of difficult here in AL right now to show them cause there aren't hardly any shows that show LF. Do any of you Al people know if any?

    Some of us are doing the best we can to spread the Love. Unfortunately Blue Boy is not getting me many fertile eggs and i am waiting on two other blue Cockerals to reach the age to help me out. I am saving every chick that I hatch from him right now. I have three in the incubator right now. Took a lot of eggs to get those. I have several in the brooder box that hatched nearly 2 weeks ago.
    It is really hard when you know so many want some but your hands are tied waiting on nature to take its course.
