    after so many years of cross-breeding our chickens all look like mini asutralorps and i was wondering if there is a breed recognized yet?

    Only a few breeders here in US have excellent Black Australorp Bantams. I can not remember the guys name that raises them....he's usually on Eggbid.

    thanks. i have a bantum book from 1975 that has a lot that i have not seen before. wouldn't it be terrible if some of these had gone extinct?

    That was my pair. They came from a breeder in West Texas. Can not remember their name to save my life. They have bantam Rhode Island Reds too...
