    I'm considering getting some chicks from Superior farms because their birds are SQ, but I noticed they don't have true bantams. I'm looking for good quality Silkies, Modern games, and other true bantams, but it seems Superior simply does not have these. Am I missing something? Any thoughts?

    And that the least expensive of their day old chicks are the Delawares at $4 and the most expensive are the Black Breasted Malay at $10.

    It seems too good to be true. They have many things I have never seen before, and SQ to boot. They have LF Moderns, which is weird because bantam moderns are far more well-known. This place is somewhat suspicious, if you ask me.

    Danny Padget ( Superior Farms ) was the guy who brought up my Buff Trio to the Ohio Show for Terry, Did you see the size of his trailer? WoW Stuffed full of birds. I could live in it. He has alot of birds. I heard a few years ago he had better quality across the board. I think he MAY have too much on his plate to do any breed right, if you are looking for an Exhibition quality bird. On the other hand I had heard someone say recently, that his quality in some breed that I do not care for was very good. I would ask to see pics. IF he does not have enough time, be patient and ask to meet up with him at a show. He gets around. And I am sure you can get some young birds where you can see them in person. That personally is the best way to go. Then you know what your getting. And usually breeders do not sell junk at shows. USUALLY!!! Not always....
