    I've been looking and looking for Onagadori for my husband, he wants them so bad, and I can't seem to find them for sale online anywhere. Does anyone know if they're just bantams or if they come in "full size" too? Can anyone recommend a hatchery for top of the line birds?
    He has some silver duckwings already, he also wants the black breasted red pheonixes. Those I found at cacklehatchery, does anyone have any experience with them?

    I did a quick search on here and found a member by the username of Onagadori and they had recent activity from September it looks, perhaps PM them.

    NO hatchery will have Onagadori. Someone in TX does have them and did have some for sale (username Onagadori on here as Peaches Lee mentioned). The hatcheries will have Phoenix, but not "top of the line" birds. Not sure who to suggest for those.

    Use the or search engines. Set them for images ,
    then type in your search words. The images will come up with the contact info for the original
    website. Go to it and see if they have any birds available. Even if the website says nothing,
    contact them. They may be downsizing for overwintering and have some nice stock available.
    This is a great way to find breeders who may not post on the boards, belong to any organization,
    or have a website but, at one time or so, have posted a pic of their bird(s)online.
    Also try keyword surfing the dedicated online photo repositories like photobucket.

    Have you tried looking for a Onagadori Society/Association that maybe can direct you to breeders? A google search reveals a few websites for fanciers which may point you in the right directions. Good luck!
