    Does anyone know of a good source for LF Black and Buff wyandottes? Either eggs or chicks.

    ETA: I'd prefer a breeder and not a hatchery.

    Have you tried sandhillpreservation.com? They keep pure bloodlines of these birds plus javas.
    Hope this helps. [​IMG]

    Thanks...I know there are some hatcheries that have them. I'd prefer to find a breeder that has them.

    I'm not sure if this makes a difference or not, but Sandhill Preservation isn't really a hatchery.

    They hatch out all of their own breeds and they do so in very small amounts. Everything they have meets APA standards (except for the colors that don't exist yet, in which case the body type/comb/etc meets standards). If you order chicks from them you probably won't be able to get 25 of any one breed because of the small hatches they have.

    I plan on getting Dorkings and Faverolles from them this year. I'm still hoping I'll have the money to get some of their Pilgrims to add to my flock.

    I know they aren't a hatchery like Ideal or Welp, but I've heard varying reports on the quality of some of their birds. I'd prefer to stick with a breeder.
