    Tracy, looking at the pictures you post here and there you don't take a back seat to noone on the BB's. Are these birds some of a line of yours or are they an improved line of someone's birds? Whatever the case, they really are nice birds to look at! Where are you located and how do I go about getting some of your birds? The reason I am asking is I have 5 different lines of BB's, Sheriff, Barnes, Just purchased this spring, Lail, Joiner, Procter ( 1 pair). It is always nice to know where like blood is if you need an outcross or some other reason, such as the big D word.
