    Bristow, ok
    Where are you located? White is a rare color in the US. I found a breeder in NJ through a google search.

    Unfortunately the last remaining large flock was lost during shipping to the west coast a little over a year ago. Some individuals still do pop up from time to time out of the salmons. Those tend to suffer from leakage though.

    Post on the Faverolles page in breeds https://www.backyardchickens.com/t/268082/faverolles-thread/14510 or the Faverolles Fanciers web page http://faverollesfanciers.webs.com/ . The club is getting reorganized and sorted out, and hopefully we will have a list of breeders and varieties soon.

    Yes I found the breeder in NJ, but she doesn't ship hatching eggs and I live in Washington State!!

    Yes, I saw that about no shipping. But hey, you are actually close to a good fav breeder in Oregon. I have black bantams that originated from Cloverleaf Farm in Oregon. Her website says only one white bantam pullet survived the shipment. I want to try to get some LF blacks from her.

    I found on a google search there is only 50 known white bantam favs in the US. Not sure how accurate that is. I wish all the fav color varieties were as plentiful as the salmon.

    Hopefully someone else will have a lead for you. Good luck in your search.

    Yes, one white pullet did survive but we are not sure how. I am the one who sent them. Two LF black hens were also lost.

    How many bantams did you get from Jeanine? Did you only get blacks?

    Unfortunately you won't be able to get any more birds from her. She has had to let hers go.

    Oh no! I was not aware of that. I just glanced at her website and I haven't followed up on the black LF yet. On the bantams I got a black roo, 3 black pullets, and 1 blue pullet. I lost one of the black pullets in January. I have a d'uccle hen sitting on eggs in their pen and I'm pretty positive the fav eggs she's sitting are fertile. I did not get them from Jeanine directly, I got them from some one else who got them from her.

    I am trying to figure out who got what. Black bantams, and blue even more so, aren't easy to find either, so I'll have to remember you have them.

    Elizmartin in WA has some LF blacks I sent her. I think one must be a dark blue since she got a couple last year.
