    I am downsizing some of my bantams.....

    I have two Amercuana Bantam hens for sale....ten dollars each and they will be three years old coming march of next year...excellent breeders but no roo for them unless there is one in the flock LOL. One is buff partridge and the other one is white.

    Might sell the extra Hamburg rooster and a pullet.....but not sure which they are going yet.

    Several birds might be for sale as well at my friends farm in Wateska, IL. If they dont go, then they will be butchered.

    All for pickups only.

    IL is bigger than I thought you're both 3 hours south of me.
    I am very interested in your auracauna hens (sp).

    I'm afraid the coop is too big for my 4 hens and they are not keeping it warm enough for themselves so more warm bodied sisters might do the trick.

    Do you have any pictures?

    I'm at [email protected]

    Thanks!

    Here are the pics of Amercuana bantams.....

    This is Honey..she was from Mike Blehm lines...daddy was a Buff Amercuana and mother was a Blue Wheaton.

    That is all the pics I got so far.....they may look a little rough right now due to the breedings....
    They are all at Wateska, IL farm...the sooner you get them the better they will be since the owner is having hard times right now, her hubby is out of work and needed to downsize the animals on the farm.

    Oh they're beautiful, I'll have to give it a week or two sorry about that. DH is stressing about money so he says no more chickens right now-

    Sure you don't want to ship? I'd love to have the Ameracanas as well.

    Depends where you are located. I havent decided on the date to come up to friend's farm to bring my girls back home so if I can get an idea where you are at and I can call my PO and find out if they can ship the two girls out after the holidays.
