    Hey Group [​IMG]

    I am in the need for a pair of bantam Wheaton cochins that are of somewhat decent type if not of show quality But I am looking for the best type I can get Does anybody on here have any or know of where I might be able to get some ? I understand that this variety is almost gone but am in the hopes that I might be able to acquire some Thanx for any help that anybody can give
