    Hi,

    I'm still new. So far, we just have our six beautiful Silkies but are planning on more chickens. I just recently went to a Poultry Show and loved seeing all the new colours. Some of the large breeds were absolutely gorgeous but I couldn't believe how big they were. I think I find them a bit intimidating so am thinking of sticking with bantams. I am, however, simply fascinated with Buff Orpingtons. Am I correct that there are bantam Orpingtons? Do any of you have pictures? Where can I find some? I'm located in Nova Scotia, Canada so that limits me, I think. But, I am open to getting hatching eggs, maybe. I have two broody Silkies right now! I also love cochins and wyandottes. Who has bantam Wyandottes?? I'd love to see pictures of those too. Man, this IS addictive!!! And, I LOVE this website. I've learned so much already!

    I know you can buy hatching eggs on eggbid, and the lady who sold to me (fellow minnesotan) has pairs for sale right now if your interested. I will have some for sale in a few months when the babies grow up a bit but probably wont ship any until spring.

    These are all gorgeous birds. I saw a pair of d'uccle at the Poultry Show. They're beautiful too! I want them all. :) I'm trying to find bantam wyandotte, bantam buff orp, bantam cochins and I also like the feather-legged buff brahmas. I don't know where to find them!
