    The USPS has destroyed many a good egg.

    All Andy has is what is listed. Just Bantam chickens.

    Quote:The quality is good. He has been breeding show quality bantams for most of his 84+ years.

    I've been to Andy's several times this year and he is a wonderful man! I took lots of photos of his birds each visit. I can email photos of his breeding stock to anyone who wants to PM me an email address. It's impossible for me to load photos on BYC anymore and I haven't taken the Photo Bucket route, yet.

    I have Andy's wyandottes in blue, black, GL, SL, and Columbian. I love them.

    If you get a chance to meet Andy, take it. He's one of a kind. In his "free" time he hand crafts crosses in his workshop. He insisted on giving one to each of my family. When I got home, from that visit, he had left a message for me.... he wanted to know how many families went to my church. On our next visit he had crosses made for every family!
