    I rescued a pair that lived in a cage, in someone's basement in Omaha last january.

    They could barely walk. Wouldnt / couldnt breed. Roosters back was pecked out...

    Finally they have come around and I was able to hatch a single chick.......

    I am unsure if these particular 2 are sop however.

    Quote:Hey Don,
    There is a farm in Arizona that raises show quality WF Black Spanish, Leon and Muriel Ewer "L & M Birds" they are listed on page 102 of the APA 2009 Yearbook. They are master breeders of Spanish. Also, Fine Feathered Friends Aviary on the same page has LF Spanish. I can't remember if I have ever seen these peoples birds when out at the Four Corners show. I do know the best I have ever seen were from Richard Schock of N. Carolina but he got out of poultry a few years back and I don't know where his birds went. The best I recall he used Large Black Minorcas to improve the size and type of his Spanish. If you find some decent spanish then I would recommend some minorcas from Adrian Rademacher in Minnesota to improve the size and feather quallity, should only take a couple of generations.
    Good to see you on the BYC. Tell everyone I said howdy!

    Blessings to you and your family,

    Bo Garrett
