    Hello my daughter got a pair of black Mottled Bantams for 4-h. This is her first year showing chickens and we are very excited. Im having a very had time finding information on them. For her Showmanship class she needs to know alot about the breed because most of the points come from the questions the judge ask. Any help or links you could send my way would be GREAT!
    Thanks!

    black mottled is a color not a breed....so you might need to find out a breed name first...... post a pic and we can help you ID it

    may be but, good luck finding anything other than bbred, brassy back, black, blue and splash. I know a fella who breeds mottled as well as a few other varieties but, mille, porcelain, lemon blue, exchequer, columbian and wheaten are near impossible to find. I scoured the countryside for wheatens and located 2 breeders in all of the US with them through the rosecomb federation. Im sure there are more... but, you'd think they'd know about it. Here's a pic... just awesome birds. This is a month or so ago and their lobes have grown quite a bit... was thinking of crossing them with the black to help the head.

    one of the biggest thing judges look for in showman ship is the kids comfort handling the bird. you should be able to find plenty of information on bantam cochins. good luck showmanship is lots of fun
