    I am in California. I would love Swedish Flower Hen eggs crossed with Bantam for my feathered girl to hatch and my daughters to help raise. Do you have some for sale or perhaps suggestions where to look?

    I have purebred SFH eggs, but none crosssed with a bantam. Just curious, why do you want to mix them?

    I am thinking of just buying some SFH from a northern CA farm that has organic chickens and eggs. I just live in the city and have a really big EE and and Ancona. My tiny coop only has room for two more and I was thinking they would be happier if they were smaller and had a tiny amount of elbow room on the roost. That's all. I really don't want to goof with the breed as they are stunning but I'm not a breeder nor am I allowed to have a rooster so it was purely for convenience I thought a smaller cross would be better. Plus my folks wanted a few as well, so we would raise them and then bring all bit two to grandma and grandpas when the time was right. Thanks for asking!

    I don't right now, but I could. [​IMG] what flavor bantam x are you looking for? I have bantam cochins mostly. a mille fleur cochin with sfh would give the right color combination, but smaller with fuzzy feet/legs... I also have bantam blrw but my one girl is on strike. LOL
