    If you do, i really need your help. If you could, could you look up New Hampshire Bantam, and tell me what it says? Thanks!

    Quote:Thats a lot of typing for a one handed septuagenarian. I think there is a site with an old standard with details in a previous post. The colors should be the same. They were not admitted to the Standard until 1935 so find a copy that was printed after that date.
