    Hi SoCalChic
    I don't think anyone in US has them yet, or if they do, the are not bragging about it here. Importing eggs is a real hassle and expensive too, so you may want to start from scratch with some chocolate breed and some black orps. Post pics here of your progress! [​IMG]

    Sandhill has Bantam Chocolate Wyandottes
    But I belive its still the dun color...
    Chocolate: A pale to dark cocoa color. Very pretty but off-types are common. Chicks $5.00 each (5) (Sold out through 4/21/09.)

    I was looking for the same kind as the ones in england...
