Some people like Sasso's, but we rear Hubbards (757's and Coloryields).  We used to rear the Mastergris, but the parent stock was sold to Cluckingnuts, one of our members who lives in Wales and he sells the hatching eggs.

if you read Grannies post she mentions who bought the breeding stock of mastergris  :).
Please note that there is no buying or selling allowed on this forum either through posts or by using the pm system.
Staffies are softer than you think.

Might want to look at Castlefarmeggs.co.uk Dave there has developed a few lines of utility breeds with decent egg laying and size of cockerels.
