So... Looking into breeders close to us that we may be interested in the breeds. The two NPIP certified are: 1. Sheryl Butler in Bothell (Cochin Bantam & LF) 2. Cynthia Smith in Tacoma (Araucana Bantam & LF) I was able to find very positive reviews for Sheryl on BYC & elsewhere. Talked to her yesterday and she seemed very knowledgable and answered all my questions & had a few of her own. She thought the bantams may not be tolerated well by our 5 LF pullets. Does anyone have experience mixing bantams with LF? Do you have a separate coop for the bantams? Also, does anyone have any insight on Cynthia? I haven't called her yet to see if she has any Araucana pullets available. Please PM me if you would like to share an experience or though on either these two that you may not feel comfortable on the board. THANK YOU IN ADVANCE!!
