    I don't know if you can remember, but we showed and sold a trio at the fair last year. I don't think I have any pictures of them . They are nice birds and were easy to work with, I just didn't have room for another breed.

    I'm thinking of getting rid of my cochins because they are too much for me with all of the fluff and keeping them in some kind of condition.... I'm still going to give silkies a go but the cochins are way too hard for me so im looking for a breed that is easier for me to handle

    Quote:They would be alot easier like the ameraucana's. I can't remember the name of the man we sold them to, but I might see him at the fair. Ours were top stock shipped in from Texas. I could see if he still has them.

    Here is a pic of my CKL he is from MR. Bell's line. he is a master breeder, Master Exhibitor and hall of famer. MR. Bell as I'm told originally got his start from MR. Matetzschk another Master, hall of famer, Exhibitor.

    I believe these RIR Bantams to be the last cockerel & pullets from this line. I have yet to find others who have any of his pure bantam strain. If any body out there has any of the old bell or pure Matetzschk line please PM or email me.
    sofar I hatched about 23-25 chicks from my trio. My CKL won RESERVE BANTAM OF THE SCCL CLASS. HENS WON #1 & 2 RIR BANTAMS.
