**Buttercups, Chanteclers, Salmon Faverolle, & Red Cap-Do you know a breeder?

Discussion in 'Chicken Breeders & Hatcheries' started by HalfAChanceFarm, Feb 9, 2013.

  1. Hello,
    I am trying to find QUALITY breeders of the above breeds in all color varities I can find. I am not interested in hatchery birds, rather a breeder. Any quantity they are able to sell is fine. I am really looking for adult stock that has some show wins to hatching eggs and everything in between.

    Thanks!

    There are 5 Faverolle LF breeders and 5 Faverolle Bantam breeders in Missouri.
    Check pages 37, 47, 48, 50 and 53 for their contact info.

    I have a friend in Wisconsin that has nice Chanteclers. I'll forward your contact to her.

    The Buttercup club has some show breeders that ship adults.

    Can't help on the redcaps except to point you toward Sandhill. Not sure the quality but I bought buttercups from him along with several other breeds and most were very nice with a few exceptions. However, they only sell dayolds.

    I know of several Faverolles breeders. Where are you located? Maybe you are near one (or more) of them.

    Where do you live? I have some in Wisconsin. A mix of 2 bloodlines from Sand Hill and some from McMurray.
