    Get eggs from some one here breeding the ones you want. Put a wated to buy in the Buy/Sell/Trade area. You'll get better birds from breeders than from hatchery stock.

    I'm pretty sure you can mix and match at meyerhatchery.com. But in most cases you can buy the birds for about what you're paying for eggs.


    I agree with MP. Post on here first.

    I have GLW hens and rooster and would be happy to send you some of their eggs, I don't have then separated from the other chickens at this point so it may take me a few days.... let me know if you are interested.

    There is a seller called "Leon Valley Trading Company" on ebay. they have a small/tiny hatchery with i guess around 250 birds breeding stock. Check what they have or see if you can call them. I had orded some 6 buff laced polish and 6 bantam/ gold laced cochin and had asked them if they can give me as extras some other breeds. I got 8 bflp,2 wcbp, 8 glc(b) and 2 pc(b). From a other seller i won 10+ silkies and asked for the same thing, i got 6 frizzles and 6 silkies of different colors.

    Sorry, no other pure breeds - just mixes of the GLW. I'm hatching a silver laced with the golden - can't wait to see what that chick will look like. [​IMG]
