heres some of my blue bantams. Need to get some more recent pics up of them though. They were only 6-8 months old here. Tails are massive now, and spurs sticking out every where..

I have a pair of Sumatras. A Black Roo and a Blue Hen. I've found that they produce Blacks more often than Blues. I've even had a Birchin from them.

I have really enjoyed breeding them, but have found them to be flighty. Has anyone else had this problem?

Will post pics soon.

I am SOOOO happy someone started this thread! I really want to learn more about Sumatras! They are next on my list!

How are they as layers? What color eggs do they lay?

My Sumatras are good layers. About the same as any other chicken. They also have a fair ammount of meat on their bones too.

Their eggs are generally a light tan brown color. Not quite white, but not quite brown either.

They really are miraculous birds! I chose them because they molt their tails every year unlike pheonix. I love the full tails and the green sheen ont he blacks. I love these birds.

I'm not attending the Ohio Nationals, but I can ship you some Hatching eggs! I will have some in a couple of weeks once my hen is done molting.

I had been trying to figure out the breed of my chickens since I got the 6 of them.  I posted some pics here on BYC and several people seemed to think they are Sumatras.  After looking at pictures online of Sumatras, and reading the breed characteristics, they certainly resemble Sumatras more than any other breed.  Pea comb, slate color legs, bottom of feet are yellow.  The black feathers have a beautiful green sheen in the light, and the tail feathers of the roos are appearing to be like Sumatras more and more each day.  They are really beautiful birds.  What do you Sumatra folks have to say? Are mine Sumatras?  They are 9.5 weeks old in the first 2 pics, 11 weeks old in pics 3-6. Thanks.
