    I found a breeder in Bandung - about an hour and a half from Jakarta airport lol

    this is getting really tempting.

    there is very good golfing in the cool mountains of Bandung. I may need to take a gold bag.

    ......Silkies have blue-black meat. I believe they are an Asian delicacy?

    As part of the adoption resolution with the DSWD, Mrs Oz will have to spend 6 months living in Cavite, just south of Manila. I suggested she rents a place that takes chickens. lol.

    She will be OK to visit the farm still - it will just mean a 6 hour day with 1 hr on a plane, the rest in a car.

    On my next trip over I will have to fly home, set the bators on automatic, spend 2 days with bernie on hatching, then drive to Cavite to deliver the car for Mrs Oz. I will put the car on three small ferries to islands including Mindoro - a small ferry ride from Romblon. What a shame I dont have orps. I could have met one of your relatives at the wharf.

    Would they be interested in a trio of mixed mutts?

    I've been eyeballing those since I saw them on the website. I'm looking forward to when us mere mortals can afford them.

    I certainly will

    I am doing an incubator workshop. I will take a wine box bator, a slightly larger hatcher and a styrobator for people to touch and feel.

    I am giving SoCal Dorkings the hatcher bator for her generosity - maybe I can give it to you if you are coming to get it part way to Antelope Valley. If so, he can get it from you or her friend in Acton.

    The guy I found on line who lives outside of Jakarta states on his website that he does not disclose price til you inspect his chickens. I will have to have locals go and see if they can organize a couple of dozen hatching eggs. If he sees a white boy, he will say "special price for you" [​IMG]

    I figure they wont be that cheap but a **** side cheaper than Greenfire.

    Greenfire Farms probably imported from Sweden, there are some there - the dutch colonists would have brought them back. There is no way they would have been allowed to bring them in from Asia.
