    Mottled java
    Black langshan
    Blue langahan
    Salmon favorelle
    White sultans
    Pyncheon bantams
    Black mottled duccle
    Golden neck duccle
    Buff laced sebright
    Red cochin standard
    Belgium quail danver
    Pendesenca
    Russian orloff

    We currently have
    Dark brahma
    Barred cochin standard
    White laced red cornish bantam
    Salmon favorelle bantam
    4 sexlink laying hens.

    I got so tired of not being able to find what i wanted so i broke down and ordered what i wanted. The mottled javas will replace my sexlink hens as the new layers.

    The rest ill keep out the best looking pair or trio and sell the other chicks.

    If i play my cards right and dont have an epic loss for unkown reasons knock on wood. I should be able to raise them a little ways. Keep what i want and sell the rest getting my birds for free. Thats the plan anyway.

    Heck yes ill post pics. Will still be a couple weeks before i get them. I tried my best to not pick super expensive breeds people cannot afford. Also trying to pick not only wanted birds but hard to find colors of birds for my area.

    I love my chickens spring is the best. Towards the end of winter i find myself wondering why. Than spring comes back around and i remember.

    Out to pasture
    Javas especially need breeders, I believe there aren't many folks raising them.

    I dont know of many people that breed java. They are one of the oldest american breeds second only to the domnique. But you just dont see it.
