Black bantam rooster wanted
« on: November 26, 2018, 09:29:14 AM »

I am looking for a black bantam male of breeding age.  No hurry, I can wait until spring if necessary, when someone is finished saving hatching eggs.  Will pay shipping and a reasonable price.  Bird must be healthy, active, and with a decent temperament.   The one I had saved was very nervous - not what I wanted to breed from.  He went to freezer camp - not mine.  Respond here, or email Chantecler7@gmail.com .   Thanks for looking.

Big thanks to Jeff Vance for promising me a black bantam cockerel to continue my breeding project of converting black bantams to gold based for, hopefully, even better sheen and undercolor.   I have two gold based pullets from a brown red male over a silver based black hen that Russ Blair was kind enough to share last year.  The two males I hatched from that mating both had silver/amber leakage, so I know they were silver/gold splits.  The pullets are solid black.
