    I got a quad shipped directly from John Blehm, and only really need 2 of the hens. John isn't going to be breeding the black bantams anymore, and he sent me "the best adult breeders" he had. These birds are about a year and a half old, and this hen lays really pretty blue eggs (don't have a pic, as the eggs are under my broody).

    The rooster had several fine hair-like feathers around his eyes when he got here, but he's losing them. The hen has really nice tail carriage (couldn't get a great pic of that, she didn't like the scary phone I was holding up!). These birds are not used to being handled, but are getting better, and they all seem to be pretty sweet.

    This rooster is really growing on me, and I might change my mind, so if you want them, snatch them up quick!

    Wow I would only like a hen and of course blue eggs and a show quality bird to share at the show....so do you think you could let me have one hen?

    Anyway just PM me if it would work or not. They are sure beautiful.

    Hi Teresa! Well, I was really only selling a hen to facilitate the selling of the rooster...I am growing out a bunch of lavender bantams right now, so if I get a bunch of girls, I'd part with one of the black hens seperately...my lavs are still chicks, so I should know for sure by the time the swap rolls around in September....
