    I acquired these 2 birds and I was told they are show quality birds. Hen and roo. I don't know what kind they are. I know these are not the best photo's, but my camera is too slow to catch my chickens without blur! I also wondered about showing. It seems stressful, is it worth it? How will the flock feel about me taking 2 birds (the only roo and the alpha hen) and bringing them back after a day or 2?

    I think you have a pair of Partrige rock bantams. And I bet that your chickens would get their pecking order back in order when you put them back in the coop.[​IMG]

    I never see any breeds called partridge rock, is it an official show breed?

    I would definately sell some eggs, I don't know the 1st thing about shipping eggs, but I would be willing to give it a go. We were hoping someone would go broody this year and lay her eggs under the broody. Anyone know how likely this breed is to go broody? message me and I can discuss shipping eggs to you.

    I got them from a guy at the NYS fair, things were so busy there that we had a hard time talking to the guy who owned them. We ended up with a "bantam" pullet that grew to be larger than our std chickens, that's what our inexperience got us. Love that hen anyway!
