    Finding interesting breeds here in South Africa is extremely difficult - [​IMG]

    Does anyone have any contacts / details of folk selling various species?

    Much obliged! [​IMG]

    Paul, I'll try post the numbers I've gathered these past months in my search.
    Are you looking for a specific breed? Or just any (poultry) breeder in SA?

    None specifically, bantimna -

    I'd just like to have options if and when I add to my flock. I found this Polish breeder on the weekend, and he can perhaps also help with a few names of pals who have different breeds.

    So I have contacts for:
    POLISH
    AUSTRALORP
    POTCH KOEKOEK

    Not much, eh...?! [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Thanks, Matthew -

    First site is populated mostly by people who have a few mixed breeds that they claim are pure - I went through dozens of these adds on this site some time ago.

    The second site is new to me but seems that ads regarding exotics are from people looking for birds, not selling them...Koek koek and Polish...?

    Nah, it's really not easy to find real breeders who have the real species over here, but thanks again for trying! [​IMG]
