    windjammer...

    203-888-3206, #(203)888-3206

    if you plan on visiting John A. Sears...let me know... I am about 20 min. from his place.

    He is still taking care of his birds but he is cutting down this breeding season.

    Hey Deep....
    where you there to pick what you bought ?
    I never saw a peacomb Sandy Hatch each time I go there...
    nor a peacomb whitehackle.

    This Sandy Hatch is mostly slate colored leg.
    I live 20 min. from him but I have no Sears blood in my yard....
    ...can't afford it ! lol !

    The last time I was there...
    he showed me his breeding pen with an Asil cock and a pair of yellow legged red hens.

    One thing for sure... they all look quality materials to me.

    Re: John Sears

    Great for stepping up granddaughter ! Welcome... chears to the Sears blood... I just could not afford them back when I still had chickens. I visit your grandpa for some chicken talk once in a while and enjoy the site of some real feathers. No doubt they are one of the best around.
    Best.

    John a Sears has a few pure bred yellow Birhens young cocks only, no hens. These cocks were called the Canaries. Some of these particular cocks come pyle in color they are the old Sefton blood from Ireland.

    what other bloodlines does your grandfather have available? Also, when is a good time to visit his farm?

    Thanks!

    silvermoon, it is history, just to have a fowl bred by jsears on the tie cord , it is something, not many old timers around. Jim
