    Marans has an S on the end, even in plural use. [​IMG]

    I would choose the Buttercup, as they're more rare. BLRW's from hatcheries aren't all that spiffy, and Sumatras are only beautiful in my opinion if you have a good quality male to accompany them.

    Quote:I was thinking the same thing... I really wanted some rare breeds just to help the # out a little. So, does 1 Buttercup and 1 Sumatra sound good?

    BTW thanks for spelling tip! [​IMG]

    Sounds good, but the real decision is up to you. [​IMG]
