    Buff Wyandotte Bantams Quad

    These are 2010 hatch Buff Wyandotte Bantams. One male and 3 females.

    Male is from Superior Farms and has placed 2nd cockerel at the APA-Arkansas State Meet and placed 2nd cockerel at the Arkansas State Fair. He is show quality.

    Females are from Ideal Poultry Farms. These are pet quality as they have white shanks. The Standard calls for yellow shanks. Approximately 50% of the chicks would have yellow shanks if mated to male above.

    These will be sold as a Quad only. Can deliver to the 2010 APA National in Shawnee, Oklahoma. May be able to send with friends to the Ohio National, Haynesville LA and Fayetteville AR shows. Will ship if you send me a USPS shipping box and pay for shipping

    Standard weight on Wyandotte Bantams is approximately 30 oz each. That makes the quad about 7.5#. Using the chart at http://www.usps.com/prices/express-mail-prices.htm and using origin zip code of 71655 anyone can look up the approximate shipping cost.

    These are in an auction format. The bidding starts at $10, with a reserve. This male is good exhibition quality from Superior Farms. We have shown him several times. He was only beat in the variety by his hatchmate. With winter coming, we are reducing our flock to our Exhibition breeders only. As we only have one Exhibition Quality hen, we only need one male. We wanted to offer this rare line to others. Superior Farms gathered the top Exhibition lines from around the country. They hired a past president of the APA and poultry Judge Danny Patterson to manage the farm. It was a great place to acquire exhibition birds from until April 2010. The owner became ill and they closed down. We have several birds from their flock, but this is the only one we are selling.

    On an Exhibition forum I asked the question about breeding the yellow shank male to the white shank females. here is the answer I recieved:

    The white is dominant to the yellow. Some of those white shanked birds you culled were probably carriers of the yellow shank epidermis. Those that were, when mated to yellow shanked birds, would have produced 50% yellow shanked offspring. This is a shank color problem that is easily corrected.

    So mating this male to the females will produce offspring with 50% yellow shanks. Save all yellow shank pullets and breed back to the sire and they will produce 100% yellow shanks.​
