    Bantam hens of *any breed* seem as scarce as...well... hens' teeth around here! [​IMG]

    OR, if anyone's interested in buying some true bantam rumpless araucana eggs w/me (and will take the roosters), I'll get my incubator plugged in......

    Are you willing to come to northern Va. because I have a whole whole bunch, including 4 week old chicks of various kinds. I work at a fall festival taking care of the chickens, rabbits and other poultry. They will need good homes after Oct. 31. They're free, too. BUT you must promise they will not be stuffed into overcrowded conditions and that they will have access to grass, some free ranging, etc. Let me know if you want to work something out. Here's where they are: http://www.coxfarms.com/

    I have quite a lot of young pullets, under 5 weeks old. I am originally from Rensselaer,IN and I'm about 5&1/2 hours from there. All mine are either blue or black, and some have red specks on them. Beautiful countryside, if you don't mind the road trip!

    Thanks all, unfortunately I have to stick close to central Indy for the time being due to work (self-employed, on-call every day until the end of the month).

    A roadtrip *anywhere* sure sounds like a lot of fun, esp. w/gas prices coming down! [​IMG]

    I live in Indianapolis, but the only bantam I have is a Silkie, and my kids would never forgive me if I gave her away. Sorry I can't be of more help. I generally only do standard breeds. However, in the spring I will be putting in orders for meat chickens, if you want to wait until then, I can tack some bantams on my order for you. I usually order from Welp.
