No, well, maybe that, and a taking advantage of a chance to SELL. DUTCH Bantams SELL.

Actually, if you clicked on her flock, you will see that she may have some "Texas Hatchery" Dutch, that are mixed Dutch varieties and are obviously crossed with OEGB, that do have Mille Fleur, but the variety is not common, not easy to find in acceptable pattern! Her birds are not acceptable colors (varieties) in any bantam breed!

I am sorry for the people who buy first and then ask--and sorrier still, for the "backyard banties" that are mutts, without saleable value (although nothing wrong for backyard pets.) And it is still worse for those so called "Dutch", that occasionally appear at SHOWs, because their owners think they are "pretty"!

I am really depressed! CJR

Added some DUTCH pictures in lieu of the "OEGB" or crossbred birds that were advertised as Dutch! See Roger's post with the web address of the pseudo Dutch! CJR

Mine do not sell for $20 a pair.

It is pathetic and I have seen the same thing with sebrights. Someone was selling some goldens where the cocks had full hackles, saddles and even big sickle feathers in the tail. Unfortunately, people buy these birds/eggs. While I feel that ignorance is no excuse for a seller, I don't think it is one for a buyer either. You need to do your homework before you buy and then the problems should be obvious.

Here's a photo that Neil Grassbaugh took of my LB cock bird last fall at the OH National. Feel free to critque. He's the sire of about half of the LB birds I hatched this year.

Yes, but there's something that's more important, and more subtle. Jean taught me about it. Anyone else want to take a stab at it?
