    Quote:I bought Golden Lace Wyandottes from a man in Inola. I love them! I can't say if they are show quality because I am a novice. But I think they are beautiful. I can pass on his number if you find none closer to you.

    The ones I bought were Juveniles, but I do know he just hatched another batch of chicks recently. I am going to pick some up for a friend tomorrow eve.

    Dun with andalusion would be an interesting combination as both are expressed best as 1 copy of teh gene and both present with lacing, may be interesting.

    Quote:I know of a man that has Dottes and Astrolorp chicks in the Tulsa/Inola area. [​IMG]

    Thanks for the quick response! We do already have birds - the oldest group are about 6 months old, the youngest are about 2 months old. We have 3 barred rock hens, 2 buff orpington hens, 1 New Hampshire roo, 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Welsummer, 1 easter egger, 3 bantam D'uccle mille hens, 1 bantam D'uccle roo. With the exception of the batams, they are feed store chicks. We have room for more as the hubby is fast and furiously remodeling our current coop.

    SOOO, what we are looking for now . . . . we would love to begin acquiring some non hatchery birds, possibly even some our two young boys could show. We did bite the bullet and order some eggs from a seller on BYC. We are expecting BLRW and RIR eggs this week - yeah! We would love to have some Gold Laced and/or silver laced wyandotte, and Marans (LOVE the dark eggs). This is a big chunk of our family fun - we have a 6 year old who cannot get enough of "the big girls" - HA! So, whatever we end up with has to be willing to be LOVED on a lot - no meanies.

    One last thing - we heard about a poultry show in Shawnee in December . . . what goes on there?





    It used to be the biggest show in the area and may still be. Last time we showed there was probably 12 years ago. Had champion feather leg with a white cochin bantam....
