Hi,

I'm looking for laying hens, but would take sexed chicks. I can't have roosters because I'm trying for a clandestine operation. We're not allowed any galliforms. I'm getting angora rabbits and planning extensive aquaculture, as we are allowed rabbits and fish, but I really want chickens.

If I have a choice, I'd like bantams. Laying quality and duration would be a primary concern, but I would rate ability to forage and subsist on that forage as highly, as well as general hardiness, and winter hardiness. And I'd like 6.

If anyone can help me out directly, or set me up with a link, I'd be much obliged.

-CK

Thanks.
