    Hi everyone. I see there are a few Iowans here. I'm hoping someone might know where I can buy some chickens to replace what the dog took yesterday. The ones we have were bought Easter weekend at a farm and tractor, but they're out of them now.
    I think these are called banties?? and they have feathers on their legs.
    Anyone know where I can find some around the Des Moines or Ames area?

    I think your talking about cochins? I don't have any of them but I may have some standard favorelles in few weeks if you're interested?

    Good morning, Amy. Thanks for responding. As best as I could guess from looking at online chickens, I thought they might be cochins, too. I lost the most beautiful hen.
    I don't know what favorelles are. Are they small, too?
    How far away from Des Moines are you?

    Look up salmon faverolles, very sweet birds pretty quiet and cold hardy. If you are interested let me know. the chickens are in mason city about 1 /2 hrs north of DM, I will be in fort dodge this wknd.
