My breeding stock came from private breeders in several states
Brahmas- Kansas, Missouri, and South Carolina
Spitzhaubens- Texas and Kansas
English Orpingtons- Kansas, Kentucky, Pennsylvania, and Missouri
Swedish Flowers- Florida, Kansas, and New Jersey
Iowa Blues- Kansas
Most breeds of bantams as decent cold weather layer of course they lay considerably smaller eggs than the large breeds. English Orpingtons are not very consistent layers. They tend to start and stop for periods of them throughout the year.
