    Hi all,
    I know there are some great breeders here and thought I would run this by.
    We are looking for either eggs or chicks, that must have exceptional vaults and leg feathering. Not in a real hurry my kids will be showing them this year. Would be able to ship chicks or eggs when it gets warmer a bit. Very cold and weather man calling for colder here in Ohio for the next couple weeks.
    Thanks for any suggestions,
    Best wishes and joy,
    Appreciate,
    Angela

    Angela, I would strongly advise you to purchase chicks that exhibit the traits you are looking for. Even if you get hatching eggs from the very best parent birds, there is no guarantee that you will get chicks with vaults or great foot-feathering.

    Hi,
    Thanks, I agree and realize you never know what you get.
    It's just better to have nice parents and the odds of getting nice babies is higher. It will probably be easier to find them in the spring and when weathers not so cold.
    Thanks for the suggestion, appreciate it!
    Best wishes,
    Angela
