    so my little sister LOVES and i mean LOVES Dutch bantams but she only has 2 from a hatchery. since we are starting to do bigger shows other then 4h i would like to buy her eggs from a breeder for her birthday in the spring. i need to find a breeder soon cause this would also be her christmas present and i need to plan this out. but her favorite colors would be wheaten and bbred. i only need like maybe 6 eggs. if you have these colors could you post pictures of your birds or send me a PM
    also im looking for 6 white cochin bantam eggs also would be in the spring
    thanks

    Oh dear, Dutch Bantams do not come in BBRed!!!!! Such dutch are crosses with OEGB and it ruins them as Dutch. Hatcheries mix them, not really Dutch, just small very pretty bantams. Wheatens in Dutch, are VERY RARE in the US, but there are a few, now bred in show quality Dutch in Canada. There will be some in the US in a year or two. Send a Private message to me and maybe I can locate some birds close to you. (Bantam eggs hatch so poorly after shipping that they are usually not worth setting. Best to find some close by.) They are out there! Good luck, Woodenshoes......

    We have some really nice ones but that would take a road trip as we are in Lebanon, MO. We are about 9 hrs for Madison Wisconsin. Is the picture of the black rosecomb yours? He is really nice. We are coming to Wisconsin May 7 and maybe could do some traiding. If you want to email me I can send you pictures of the cream light brown dutch that we have. [email protected]
