As of February 2012, we no longer have white bantams. We are concentrating on improving our blue, black and splash pens. We added a nice black roo from
Steve Waters lines and some black hens. The first picture is a nice black double-tufted pullet from 1st hatch from our new black roo
;her name is WHISPER.

In June of 2008, Paul and I purchased our first flock of Araucanas, a flock of white bantams. This started it all! We quickly fell in love with Cappy and his ladies.. known in some circles as the FANTASTIC FIVE! Cappy, our bantam rooster is a NONTUFTED, Tailless white rooster. He is joined by Snowflake Obsidian, tufted white hen; Lacey, tufted white hen, Sugarpop, nontufted white hen and Julianna, a black/duckwing recessive tufted hen. Thanks for your patience Bobbi with us raw beginners! More thanks to Alan S. who has been just great in explaining chicken genetics.. we will learn.. eventually!!!
We are currently working on improving our lines and investigating other colors of Bantams. Watch us in the near future as we explore Colombian Blue, Splash and Black bantams.
