    I know Sandhill Preservation has them. This is what they say about them.

    "Chocolate: A pale to dark cocoa color. Very pretty but off-types are common."

    Not very descriptive to say the least. [​IMG] But maybe they are more boring than I think... [​IMG]

    What do these little guys look like? I am just very curious. When I had chickens I considered ordering some just to work with them and see what they looked like. Does anyone have any experience with the breed or pictures? I would love to see them.

    Chocolate and dun wyandottes are the same thing. We had some for a couple years then sold them once we were done with the (they were used for our dun laced)/ By off types I think they mean color. If you breed 2 chocolates together you get 50% chocolate, 25% black, and 25% khaki. Khaki is even unlike blue splash, the color is kinda ashy grey, they are very pretty. I havent seen any of Sandhills wyandottes but of they are like normal wyandotte bantams they are great. We have some pics of our old duns on our site (link in signature line)
