    Hello BYCers!!! I need help choosing where to order these from. I was looking at ideal, and theirs are only $2.92 each. BUT they are BANTAMS (????) It says "Standard weights at maturity are males-30 oz. and hens-26 oz."

    Aren't they supposed to be average sized birds???

    Help me!

    I found a few breeders who sell LF BLRW, but some will run you $9 a chick. Look around here. I think there is a breeders thread somewhere....looking...

    I will look for my McMurrey catalog..I think theirs are standards.

    Quote:There are both LF and bantams. There is a thread on here from a few days ago asking about the quality of hatchery BLRWs. There are some breeders who sell chicks, but like was already said, the good ones aren't cheap. There are several of us on BYC that sell hatching eggs if you decide to go that route.

    I'm too worried about hatching eggs myself. I dont care too much about the quality, just as long as they have blue and red in them. LOL!!! I'm not too picky on them right now. I wish I knew some people who sold some in Arizona...

    I think welp hatchery sells them in large fowl. www.welphatchery.com. I think they were around $3. They don't charge shipping either. Having said that, I have never ordered from welp so I can't comment on quality.

    I've seen pics of Katy's birds, they are beautiful and I think she sells hatching eggs.
