I bought a chicken at a market in Ireland this morning. The guy selling the chickens there told us she's a White Bantam Java. I'll post a pic of her tomorrow morning and I'd love to hear your opinions. I honestly didn't expect to find a rare breed chicken at a rural farmer's market and I'm wondering about this little hen, to be honest. To his credit he sold me a Silver Leghorn last week which I've compared to pic I found online and she looks "right". He had some gorgeous leghorns for sale and I picked up 2 young brown pullets and a white one as well. My DH fell in love with the bantam and it was only when I researched the breed that I found they are listed as rare, with the white ones very much so.
Am interested to see.
There are very few White Javas here in the US since they have not been recognized by the American Poultry Association for around a hundred years when they removed from the list of recognized Java colors. And as far as I know, there is only one person that has been working to make bantam Javas - in Black - here in the US and I have not seen any photos of his or know how successful he has been with making a bantam Java.
