    Actually Black Javas are in the United States. There are varieties of Orpingtons that aren't, and some Wyandottes.​

    I guess I'm not sure what you're wanting. If you are looking for a UK breeder to buy from your best bet would be to look at some of the UK poultry sites. If you find somebody willing to jump thru all the hoops on their side of the Atlantic then you need to get all the permits and paperwork done here to be able to import them legally.

    Norfolk Greys are rather hard to find in the US as well as Scots Grey.
    Some you can also look into are Asturian Painted Hens, Belgian d'Everbergs, Marsh Daisies, and Barbu de Watermaels.

    I'm going to the National poultry show in Frankfurt Germany Dec 16-19. They have 23,400 birds entered. What are you looking for?

    Quote:so lucky! I know what I would come back with. LF Blue & Chocolate Partridge Wyandotte eggs or any way!
    Plus any very rare breed that needs all the help it can get. Yep I so would jump on bringing eggs or something home.
    Hope you have a safe trip and if you can take pics that would be great to see!
