    That would be awesome! Then we would have two sources for these beautiful birds in the Bay Area.

    I don't have room, plus I've never been a huge fan of Brahmas in general, but if I did have these space these birds are just too beautiful to not breed.

    Cheryl, so 5 pens plus a layer flock pen? 6 pens? That's a lot of chickens! I sometimes feel like I still have a bunch and I did a lot of downsizing over the winter.

    Quote:I don't know if she will be breeding them but I'm sure she would get a roo or two in her order. Heck, I might buy a pair from her and keep them at a friends house just to have some too! [​IMG] They remind me of my Buff Laced Polish, the Buff Lacing is beautiful.

    I wonder how you could get that lacing color on an Orpington... THAT would be to die for!!! [​IMG]

    And the point of that is.... I plan on specializing in brahmas so the best solution to all of that would be to go to the breeder. Correct? If its something you really love then I don't think there's a price tag on them.

    Possibly, I dunno where? [​IMG]

    If people have bought from that source though there are probably others with eggs or chicks at a lower price.

    How much do you plan on charging for chicks or eggs Cheryl?

    I've looked into importing birds directly from the UK. For a pair, or a trio at most we would be looking at $5,000+ initial investment.

    But, I looooooooooooooooooooove the Diamond Jubilees soooooooooo much!!! [​IMG]
