    Hello, I am looking for some good show quality birds from some private breeders. If you know of anyone or have hatching eggs/chicks and are willing to ship (or have adults and are within an hour and a half of Springville PA) please let me know[​IMG] I'm looking for the following breeds:

    Wyandottes (silver laced, blue laced red, black, blue, and white)
    Langshans (preferably black but open to other colors)
    Sussex (light, speckled)
    Marans (any coloration)
    Pure Ameraucana's(blue, black, Wheaton)
    Plymouth rocks (barred, white, buff)
    And lastly Brahma's (any color)

    Thanks ahead of time[​IMG] my email is [email protected]

    It may be an idea to check out the Clubs / Associations from the breeds that you want. I just did this search, for example - american wyandotte breeders association and it came up with 2-3 for the States. I would have thought that there would be a list of breeders / members somewhere among them.

    X2 what CTKen said. That's where I started. I'm looking for breeders of Barred Rocks and Brown Leghorns, and while I located a couple of good Barred Rock breeders I haven't had much luck with Brown Leghorn breeders. I tried to get in touch with the American Brown Leghorn Club but they're sort of in limbo right now and I've had the most luck with their Facebook page. So you might want to check Facebook as well as a source. Just my $0.02 but good breeders are hard to find. That just makes me all the more determined to become a good breeder myself. Oh, and also you might want to join the American Livestock Conservancy because they have a breeder list as well.

    There is a breeder local to me that has (from your list) Speckled Sussex, Blue/Black/Splash Marans, French Black Copper Marans, true Ameraucana (Lavender and blue/black/splash), and Light Brahma. They also have Araucana, exhibition quality.

    I get from them locally, but they do ship as well. sawmillchickenfarm.com

    This is my current Blue/Splash Marans hen from this breeder. She is about 7 months old and lays beautiful, perfectly shaped dark brown eggs.
