    Has anyone gotten BLRW Bantams from Ideal Poultry? What was their quality?

    From what I hear from old BYC folks, their chicks are very poor quality and they are getting more of the Golden Laced W colors than the BLRW. Best bet is to go to a private breeder who would look for consistent colors and lacings on their birds.

    My chicks i got from Ideal were very nice quality. Not at all SQ; but much better than what i was expecting.


    I dont, however, know anything about their BLRW bantams....sorry. You best bet with anything BLRW is to go to a breeder; any hatchery is bound to have poor quality blrw.

    I personally carry the barber lines of BLRW standards but I do not have the bantams.
