    I sit here and read over so many of these breed threads and see great pictures and great information BUT I dont seem to see many people talking about Cornish or Cornish bantams. I have raised the LF and the bantams in the past and loved them. Just wondering if there were others out there that might be wondering the same thing....

    There was a Cornish thread once, lasted about 2 pages. . .

    Most of the Cornish breeders here stick around the Heritage Large Fowl thread or the White Laced Red Cornish project thread in the meat section.

    I'm going to have to look up that white laced red thread, I'll bet they are beautiful.

    In the meat section huh? Guess thats why I missed it.

    Love Cornish bantams, some of the best chickens I have ever had. Raised Darks, WLR and Whites in the past.

    Cornish are by far one of my favorite breeds. I have LF and bantam darks, i am hoping to get some LF whites and WLRs at Crossroads this year, i also want to get some white and spangled bantams.

    Sorry the pics are not the best i have to get some better ones.
