Off the Waiting List

We have been on a waiting list for these Nankin bantam chicks. These are on the critical list of the The Livestock Conservancy and are one breed selected for Colonial Williamsburg's conservation program. We look forward to raising them over the next few years and hope to offer them for sale to others.

The darker chick in the foreground is a Mille Fleur d'Uccle bantam.
We could only purchase 10 Nankins and had to fill the minimum order of 15 with other chicks. This helps keep them warm during travel. We decided to add to our Mille Fleur breeding stock.
