    Hello Fellow Poultry Friends,

    My daughter and I have been actively involved in raising Nankin bantams. We have really enjoyed their antics, sweet temperaments, and caring for them.

    Are there more Nankin fans out there? If so please respond! I'd love to hear from you.

    We have several cockerels and pullets available.

    We're in the Central Valley of California.

    Happy tending,

    Sue and Amy in California [​IMG]

    I have Nankins. They're absolutely adorable and have so much character and personality.
    I would be interested in a nice, well tempered cockerel. [​IMG]

    Are they like Seramas? I Google-imaged them and what I saw reminded me of Seramas.

    I have heard of them and really like how they look. I haven't seen any for sale round here though. Can you post pics of yours?
