    I do not want hatchery birds but they don't have to be show quality birds either.

    Keep my name, i have dark cornish bantams and can send eggs in spring...

    I have a blue roo and 2 blue hens and 2 nicely laced darks. Haven't gotten a blue yet, which I was hoping for but had great hatches last year. I'll keep your name in my system so next spring i can send you some if you're still interested.

    Thank you LittleAmericanamom. YOurs look good. I would love to buy eggs is you have any available when you get done setting your own. I am not looking to show these but I do like the look better of the non hatchery DC bantams. I have missed out at every show picking up a few birds. Could have bought a trio a few years back and have been sorry ever since that I didn't. I love they way they look.
    I raise LF BBS Orps for show and so tell me about the personalities of the beautiful cornish if you will.
    Is fertility good in them? Being so short and stout do you make the nest low for them? Do they roost on roost poles low to the ground?'
    Sorry for so many questions.

    Quote:Ours are very friendly, But they are my 12yr old daughters, so they are handled alot. They don't take the cold as well, If it gets in the 20's I turn on a heat lamp for them.

    So far I haven't had fertility problems, but 1 roo has 2 hens and 1 roo has 3 hens, So I keep my breeding pens small.
    Mine lay eggs on the ground and I don't have roosts in their pens they just sit on the floor

    Good SQ cornish are hard to find. and expensive . $50 for a good pair seems to be the going price, and then you are still getting thier culls. But thier culls are still good birds and can produce Champions.

    We got our first one at a show. Then we met Henry Mager at a show and picked up 2 prs from him, He won Super Grand Champion that day with a Dark Cornish hen, So he has GOOD stock. Then our friend Shari (Harvest Breeze Farms) Ask if we'd like to have hers as she was getting out of then. This was the pair that started my daughter wanting the cornish, She was SOOOO eexcited to get this pr. So we got lucky in getting ours. But there for awhile I was giving up hope of finding any

    Here is the link to Henrys Cornish that won Super Grand Ch. If you'd like to go look at her

    LittleAmericana Mom, Shari is the sweetest person. I bought Blue Orp eggs from her years ago. She was at Ohio National in 2009 showing silkies and cochins and got to meet her in person. She has really good birds in all her breeds. Your Blessed that you got her stock.

    I appreciate getting a pair. No kidding though If you have eggs in abundance I would like to buy some too. They sound like a breed I will really enjoy. It is not cold in this area often so they should thrive well.

    Shari is very nice. My daughter loves going to her house. Shari only has the cochins and silkies now , though she was talking about getting a different breed for her son, but I can't remember what breed that was
