    I have a beautiful solid white langshan that is one of the most calm chickens I have. Her name is Sadie. She's the only langshan I got with my first order of chicks wished I had more. [​IMG]

    I, too, would love to get some black Langshans - bantams. But it seems they're near-impossible to acquire. I've even subscribed to their group, but I have yet to see anybody offer hatching eggs. A few people say they'll have eggs from their standard birds available in the spring, but it feels like only one person in this whole country has bantams... Seems they're not very prolific layers, either.

    A 4-H girl I met recently said that she got black Langshan bantams only by going to the National meet in Maryland (or maybe it was some other state, I don't remember) and actually *getting* them and bringing them back to California. And to add to the discouragement, I was told that these are the flightiest birds in existence. I thought they were supposed to be very calm and friendly (at least that's what the Henderson Chicken Breed Chart says) so I'm actually having second thoughts about continuing my pursuit of this breed. I suppose I could always rehome them if they turn out to be nervous and flighty.

    So I guess this is my shameless plug - if *anybody* has black Langshan bantam eggs for sale, I WANT THEM!!! [​IMG]

    I love my two Langshan pullets. I got them when I ordered my feathered leg group. Sweet things. This picture was taken way back in July so they've grown quite a bit since then.
