    I am in Jacksonville AR, looking for a few Black Penedesenca chicks, or hatching eggs next spring.
    Looking forward to the Poultry Party in Feb
    Thanks

    There are a couple Penedesenca breeders in Arkansas but I don't think any have Blacks. One is in Morrow and one in Clinton.
    A couple years ago there was a guy in Joplin, MO that had a couple pullets and a cockerel but I haven't heard from him in a while.
    I'm probably the closest one with Blacks to Arkansas and I'm in St. Louis, MO.

    Thanks for the response. If I get near St Louis, I will check with you. Do you mail chicks? They sound like one of the breads that would do well for our place, I would like to let them free range as much as they can safely. If I don't get the Black ones next spring, I may try the Partrige or Crele, but I think the Blacks are all I need.

    do you know anyone with a incubator?
    I have crele and black ( though my black are a real work in progress and not as good as others)
    I also have white empordanesa
    I will ship eggs but not chicks


    Flying a farm does Wheaten and Partridge I think ( I think she is in Morrow I think
    Elias is in Clinton and he does white empordanesa and may have crele penedesenca

    Dear Hangtown Farm:
    Thanks for the response,
    I do have a good incubator, but I read that BP eggs don't have a good hatch rate after shipping. I hope to find some chicks to start with, maybe someone will have some near Arkansas.

    Me too I just hatched my first batch so I know fertility is good, second batch will hatch around march 1st. Im not sure about the purity of the first batch since I raised them with a pair of blue ameraucanas so they might be crosses. Hmm do you think the crosses will lay olive colored eggs.

    Hay Ozarkguy:
    March 1 is the same day as the Poultry Party in Rison, but If you will be at Beebe March 1, I will be there to meet you.
    Hope you have a few dozen BP eggs then. My email address is on my page.

    if there mixes they would have pea combs since there a F1 cross. if they have straight combs there Black Penedesenca

    if they have pea combs yes you should get olive eggs
