    Buff Laced Polish
    Silver Laced Polish

    If I get one each of the above combination will the Polish hens have trouble getting picked on too badly?

    breeders for quality birds of the above in this area...?

    Thanks

    I don't keep any of those so I can't help. I do keep: Barred Rocks, Speckled Sussex, Dark Cornish, RIR, Black Jersey Giant, Marans and Black Sex Links. If you ever want hatching eggs or birds, I can set up a pen of them pretty quickly.

    Howdy,
    I am looking for some Speckled Sussex.
    Do you have eggs and or chicks available?

    I am waiting on a few broodies to kick in so im not needing eggs just yet.

    Sorry I missed this. If and when you are ready for hatching eggs, I can put together a pen of Sussex. My rooster won at the fair last year and is quite handsome. It takes about 5 days to "clean" the hens (i.e. get the other rooster genetics out of them) before I can start hatching eggs.

    I can also hatch purebred SS's; but I have no way of sexing them. You'd have to take a straight run and then eat or sell the extra roos. They are very pretty birds and I bet you would get $5-10 each at auction.

    I would be interested in a Maran pullet.
    Will you be at the Kennewick chick sale this coming Saturday?

    I would like to try and hatch some eggs but am just not quite there yet. [​IMG]
