    My mother in law likes the silver laced look. I have slw, but she lives in town and would like bantams. I cannot find slw bantams anywhere! I'm wanting to get some early next winter, so I figured I'd start looking now. I've found sl Cochin bantams, and sebrights in sl. Are there others? I think she likes the chunky look of the Wyandotte vs sebrights. Cochins bantams might be ok, but are they very broody as bantams?

    Just looking for other ides and info on laying and friendliness of these breeds. Thanks!

    truthfully it depends on the stock and bloodline of the birds.

    there are other breeds in SL but they are harder to find.

    Does any one have ideas on where to purchase slw bantams? I've checked all the hatcheries that I know and local farmers. I'm in WI.
