    Hi I am in Live Oak Florida and am looking for some Japanese bantams, either buff, grey, or black tailed white. I am looking for good quality birds, but not so nice that I don't want to play with them or let them get a little dirty now and then. I am looking for chicks and need for the breeder to be nearby, as I am too busy to travel far and don't want the chicks to be shipped.

    The birds will be given a good, safe place to live and I will devote a lot of time to taming them and making them pets. I have always wanted japanese bantams and really hope someone nearby has them. So, anyone near Live Oak, Lake City, Perry have any buff, grey, or black tailed white japanese? Oh, and I am looking for at least ten chicks, maybe 15 so I hopefully get plenty of hens.

    PM me if you think you can help me! Thanks [​IMG]

    hey I think I might be interested! I have been looking for another breed to raise, but nobody near me has any golden laced or columbian cochins........So I think some japs would be nice. Much easier to monitor scaly leg with a non-feather legged breed compared to silkies....I will send you a PM! BTW i have raised some Japs in the past and raise really nice silkies, so they won't be going to a noob who doesnt know how to take care of them.
