    I recently bought 1 that weighs about 5.2 and I was wondering if they come that big. I have always heard they were small. I have never seen 1 that I know for a fact is a Bennett. Thanks for any help!

    I like this blood I bred a Sc MS Hatch over my BB Blueface.That was my last bunch I hatched off this year they are 100% and gl of course,and the other day I had to separate 2 of the fighting at 2 months old their heads were bloody and swollen but they just wouldn't stop.I hope these turn out nice with time.

    My Bob Bennett Blueface roosters are high 4s to 5 lbs....so far I have not gotten any that were close to 5 1/2 pounds. What they may lack in size, they make up for in ability. I love mine.

    Has anyone ever had any of the Bob Bennett Blueface come blue legged? So far I have not, but I have been told by someone that has them that they did have some come blue legged this year. From what I remember, the makeup of the Blueface originally had McLean blood in it and I have seen several McLean families that will throw blue legged offspring. I have also seen several Ruble families that throw blue legs as well. Just wanted to see if anyone else had blue legs show up in their Blueface line.

    I know that some take leg color/feather color very seriously but for me I worry more about their show performance. I know that Bob Bennett was a very particular breeder and had success breeding both the Blueface and the Grey bloodlines that he had.

    Re: bob bennett blueface... how big are they pure??

    Yes mntnman ive had them that come blue legged. Mine were mostly blue legged (more slate then blue). Mine came straight from bob years ago. He helped pick my hatches and my greys.. They are smaller if I raise when its spring 4.5-5. how ever if i breed them in the fall I get 5-5 to almost 6#'s. I bred these for a while but let them go.i will add that they were alot easier to raise in the fall aswell.. Dead game birds with power to spare but just not my type of hatch. If anyone was wondering, I do remember most of his fowl having almost olive green colored leg on his farm. Why he sold me blue legged chickens i dont know but they were damn good. Had jet black feathers in the head too. Pretty crazy.

    My rooster is pretty good size. Haven't weighed him since he was bought second hand. He was just a 4-5 month old stag when I got him. He's well over 5#, hits like a brick. He has slate blue legs as well. This year i bred him to a Bill Morris Hen. The stags and pullets look really good.
