Welcome to our
Single Comb Dark Brown Leghorn Bantam
Our Dark Brown Leghorn bantams combine our original breeding meshing with the best bloodlines from established flocks in the Eastern states. We are pleased that our hens are free of shafting and show good stippling in their plumage. Our males in particular show good saddle width, depth of color and outstanding feather width.
For many years, we have been continuing to strive toward a "complete" bird with proper color, good feather width and overall type and balance with proper sweep to the tail. Though breeding quality poultry is always a "work in progress", we feel we are progressing toward some truly nice birds and a tribute to their breed.
The male pictured above is one of our breeding males and exhibits the type of bird we strive to produce. He has balance, symmetry, feather quality and depth of color.
We have some young birds available, hatched late April and May. Pullets are especially good layers.They will be ready for the winter shows. Pairs are $40. We currently have a large selection and will be bringing sale birds to the Fall/Winter 2013/2014 shows.
Starting in Spring 2014, we will be offering hatching eggs from our poultry, $30/dozen or $2.50 per egg, shipping extra. We feed a 23% feed, supplement with Red Cell and collect eggs twice daily. We keep our birds clean, so the eggs are clean and do not require washing. We ship eggs no older than 3 days.

We have also been raising Bantam White Leghorns for some years now. Our stock originated with Branum bloodlines, then meshed with George Beyer and Jim Sallee bloodstock. We have two outstanding breeding pens set up for 2014 headed by two Sallee males.

Keeps his tail spread out full all the time, should sire some nice pullets who keep their tails fanned. I would critisize him for tendency to drop his wings.

Small framed bird, good disposition, tendency to dropped wing carriage, nice sweep, chief plus is his fanned out tail, never clamps his tail. Should sire pullets who keep their tails spread.
Cockerel # 015
Small frame, very yellow legs, tail coming in nicely, not finished in feather yet, nice spread tail. Has nice front end, good width. More ideal tail carriage.
Small bird, nice tail, good width throughout, good front end; tendency to drop wings, tail carried slightly high. Males that keep their tails fanned out full are likely to sire pullets who do the same, a real plus in the show ring.
Our adult Bantam Leghorns are $30 each. We have a female line, in that the females are the show birds. They are nice bodied, have good width and carry their wings on the horizontal much more so than the males.
We are almost out of available pullets, but have some nice 1 and 2 yr old hens from the breeding pens available.
Excellent color, full, muscular body, good size, full tail, tendency to drop wings (probably THE biggest issue with the lovely Dark Brown variety, but overall a nice bird. Wing markings are correct. Tail not yet grown in fully.
