    Ideal has several color varietys but they do not compare to the UK ones! WE just don't have many of their style over here yet.

    I will have B/B/S Orpington bantam eggs in the spring. They are not the English type you are looking at. They are bred to the APA standard.

    I can vouch for Dick, its been a good while since I had his bantams. They are very healthy and sound and they made the trip! I would not hesitate buying MORE from Dick!

    B/B/S= Black, Blue and Splash.

    In other words his pens are set up to produce a combination of Black, Blue and Splash chicks. Check the BYC auctions. Dick sells there often. He is a good breeder and a nice fellow. However, his wife is better looking and nicer than Dick is. His wife, Pat, is the secretary of the American Poultry Association.

    Sorry Dick. We must tell the truth!
