    Yeah, I noticed someone else immediately placed another pair too. I can see the motivation. [​IMG]

    Have you ever heard the expression "A Fool And His Money Are Soon Parted"? IMO that certainly applies here.
    These birds are junk-horrible Cochin type and horrible Mille Fleur coloration.
    I do not understand why anyone would buy birds like that at all, let alone at those kind of prices.

    I don't care much for those birds - I know you have to start somewhere... but, the eggs that were offered on eggbid from millie fluer cochin parents were MUCH better quality. I couldn't allow myself to spend that kind of money anyways. ha...

    I think it is neat that someone is trying to develop a new color. IMO it is a nice looking bird for a start. Yes, it does need improvement on type and some in color. I actually think this person is a member of this forum. If I had seen this post it would of really upset me, if they were mine. I personally dont try to bash anyone that has obviously taken the time to work hard on these birds. If it wasn't for people like this person we would all have the same exact chickens. Who ever owns these birds, just wanted to say GOOD JOB. [​IMG]
    Edited to add:
    Clarify, that I thought they were talking about Tates auction.
