    Does anybody have any pictures of these? Does anybody know where I could even get some, either hatchery or breeders?

    I was thinking of contacting Rutgers's Department of Agriculture since I live in New Jersey to see if they have kept track of who breeds them since they made that bred in the first place...

    Thanks,
    ~Ed

    Are you tlking about Dutch bantams? You can check them out on the website at www.dutchbantamsocietyamerica.com

    They are wonderful little birds. Some hatcheries sell them though the quality is lacking.

    We have a Barred Holland Hen, she looks like a barred rock with leghorn hints. she is such a good layerof huge white eggs and very calm and inquisitive, I would get more if I could find them.

    I know Sandhill sells barred hollands and I think Ideal might. Maybe contact the SPPA, they will be able to tell you who all has them, I dont think I have seen any whites before, only in the standard and online.

    Thanks everyone, I'll contact Sandhill and go ahead and send Rutgers an email since I'd naturally prefer to get them local if I can than have to ship them.
