    They seem like great chickens. Anyone know a good place for them? Just looking for 2 or 3, I would prefer hens only but am considering getting an incubator.

    Getting excited for spring and to fill up my new big coop!

    Ideal poultry does as well. I would rather get them from a private breeder than a hatchery.

    Spotsplus here on Byc has them. Maybe she can help. She lives right in franklin Ma too.

    I have them. They're very nice birds, inquisitive and beautiful. If you only want hens to add diversity to your flock, then hatchery stock will do. But if you want "true and correct" stock, then you should get them from a private breeder.

    Great, thanks! I do just want a few hens for a little diversity in my flock but like the idea of getting them from a local breeder if I can drive there.

    Anyone else have good things to say about them?
