    Does anyone in SoCal have black Javas? I don't have an incubator, so would prefer day old chicks, or older.

    Did you ever find your Black Javas you were looking for? I found this ad on craigslist and thought of you. It listed Black Javas and relatively speaking, Perris isn't super far from Anza so I thought I would post it here.

    I got them! 6 hens and 2 roos.... a nice starter flock! They are feathered out and look very healthy.

    Woo-Hoo - Doing the happy dance!

    Yeahhhh! I am glad you were able to get them, rather than just anyone. Some folks might have only wanted laying hens and not take the roos. That would have been a shame. I hope you get lots of Black Java chicks and eggs!

    Nancy - I would love to have eggs go to people who'd like to start their own flock.

    My babies are 6 weeks old, so it'll be a few months yet before they start laying.... and then I'll have to figure out how to ship eggs. [​IMG]

    Woohoo! Black Javas are a wonderful heritage breed. I'd love to have a few myself. In fact, I want a flock of every chicken! Now only to get DH to agree with me.

    They are an American breed, originating between 1835 and 1850.

    They're a dual purpose homesteading breed. They are supposed to do very well when allowed to free range (which they will NOT be doing here, because there are too many hawks).
