    I've been put in charge of finding Japanese bantam breeders for this years Know your Breed 4H project. Breeders I've found will be written down on a list and recommended to my superior. Here are our Needs~

    * Need Good SQ birds
    * Need you to live a reasonable distance from me
    * Need you to dish out anywhere from 30-75 birds
    * Need a good amount of Varieties but the Black & White Varieties are preferred.
    * Need them by the end of March
    * The cheaper the better

    Please Comment if you meet most or all of these expectations and are willing to help! We are very grateful! If we can't find breeders we will be stuck buying from a hatchery [​IMG] not cool...

    good luck... go to some big shows and talk to the big time breeders, hang around good swap meets, or order eggs and have the kids hatch them. Our club is always able to get the birds they want, you just need to make the right connections, we occasionaly even have some of the older members breed for the rest of the club.
