Quite a few New Hampshire Bantams being exhibited at shows.Marking for later. Anyone here have Bantams?
I'm in South Texas. I have some of the German New Hampshires that have not been crossed with any other strains. I am working to get them as close to the Standard as possible without bringing in other birds. I know that this will take lots longer, but I like knowing the variables. I am going for good type, first of all. I'm trying to get the best birds out of the ones who are developing quickest. I'd like them to have the traits that they were originally developed for, as well as good looks. I appreciate having a forum where others are working on the same goals.
Sustainable Poultry Network has both old New Hampshire large fowl from Halbach Poultry Farm and Good Shepherd Ranch Frank Reese Jrok it depends on where you live, the breeder i'm getting them from in February lives in Somerset, Ky. but another breeder lives in Rhoadesville, VA. Unfortunately there are very few new hamp breeders these days.
