    Hi!! We love the Bielefelders, but they’re unfortunately too big for us, so we’re hoping to find the bantam variety (apparently introduced in ‘83) or perhaps a Biele x Silkie? We’ll pay whatever you ask.

    I am just getting started with Bielefelders this year, and I also have a few 4 day old Bantams going (Cochin and Cochin/Silkies). If you have not found what you are looking for by spring, I may be able to produce a cross. There is a significant size difference, but I think it's achievable. Are you looking for fertile eggs, chicks, or established birds? A Pair? Trio? More?

    I currently have a bantam housed with my Bielefelder roo. She is a Cochin/Serama mix. No eggs yet, but I will let you know if anything comes of it.
