    May look at bantums too?

    I have a bantam Dark Brahma pair. The hen is temporarily on strike, though. [​IMG]

    Anyone have them now?
    Thanks

    Have also heard they are hard for fertility, is that true?
    Thanks

    This is a long shot but I'll mention it just in case. I have 2 dark brahma bantam girls that are 6 months old. One has begun to lay. They were raised in my laundry room all winter and are extremely tame. However, I live in Va. and that's a "fur" piece.

    Both of my pairs have started laying again. Both breeds are guaranteed pure and fertile. I have put 8 eggs in the bator and had all but one DB hatch, and it had developed for a while. So I'd say fertility is not an issue with my pairs. [​IMG]

    My little black Silkie hen has started laying, too, but her roosters are not Silkies. If you decide you'd like some of my pure breeds, I will throw some of my Silkie's eggs in too.

    I have a quad of standards lights that I just separated, and a pair of BBB.
    I'll post once I have pure eggs available.
    Have a good day.
