    Rusty is just one too many males in this group. He's a gorgeous dark mahogany shade of Mille Fleur-if you know this breed, you know you cannot get it from a hatchery! He has great type, from an excellent breeder of rare color D'Anvers, our own Boggy Bottom Bantams.

    Rusty is a fiesty "little big man", but if you know D'Anvers, you know that's pretty much expected in this breed. He's a great breeder, super alert, and would produce beautiful chicks for you.

    Pickup at my home in Fannin County, GA.

    Cynthia...Rusty is gorgeous. I'm sure you will have no problem selling "His Majesty". Great photos by the way!

    Thanks, Kathryn. He is a handsome little toerag, isn't he? I just don't need four D'Anver males in with three D'Anver females and one banty Cochin; well, they also have a LF Phoenix pullet and my elderly LF Buff Orp hen but those two are not nearly as attractive or "gettable" as the small ladies so Mr. Rusty needs a new home.

    Thanks! Yeah, I just can't put a live animal in a box and hand it to the P.O., though I know it's done every day. Plus, I'm not NPIP certified, which is a requirement for that to be legal in most states, if not all.
