I have two kids in 4-h that do show hens. All of my hens in my backyard we have gotten from a fairly local hatchery. I love my girls. My son is looking to show a bantam size Easter egger. I have been looking around and they seem to be pretty scarce (or I'm not looking in the right spot). I am in central California. I found a web site called California hatcheries that seems to have them. However I haven't heard good thing about big hatcheries. Are they bad? I'm just looking for a different chicken that I don't see around fair much.
