    Hello everyone, I am looking for some breeders who breed show quality bantams.
    Recently, I have decided it is time for me get some new chickens for 4h. I've tried craigslist for a bit, but nothing of my interest has been showing up. So I thought maybe I could go on here, ask, and see what people have to say. ( I live in OR btw )

    Here are some of the breeds I am interested in ( Bantams ) :

    - Cochin

    - Old English game

    - Sebright

    - Japanese Bantam

    - Rose comb

    - Hamburg ( Feel free to recommend tips, and any other breeds that are good. )

    Eagle Nest Poultry in Ohio has what you are looking for. They list their bantams as show quality. I have purchased 2 regular sized SQ breeds from them and they very nicely conformed to breed standards.

    Personally have not purchased their bantams, but @ButtonquailGirl14 has purchased some bantams from them.

    Their catalogue lists bantams as follows:

    Clean legs: Columbian Rock, Partridge Wyandotte, WC Black Polish, BB Old English, Buckeye, Black Tailed White Jap, Wheaten Americana, Golden Polish, RIR, Black Rose Comb, SS Hamburg, Silver Penciled Wyandotte, Phoenix.

    Booted: Black Cochin, Bearded White Silkie, Mille Fleur, Buff Brahma, Salmon Faverolle, Porcelain Belgium Bearded D’Uccle.

    You can also search by state on NPIP website. They use stock codes, listed on left side of the page. Bantams have their own category, so scroll through to find the codes for your desired breeds.

    :thumbsup Totally second everything written here.

    My Hamburg bantam pair is amazing. Such beautiful little birds. :love I've also ordered Phoenix, Salmon Faverolles, Rosecombs, Wyandottes, d'Uccles, Rhode Island Reds, Buckeyes, Wheaten Ameraucanas, Plymouth Rocks, Old English Game bantams, Polish, Brahma, and Silkie from the bantam assortment. Sadly, the Japanese didn't make it. I'm happy to provide pictures if needed. :D
    I do believe that was me. ;)
