Hi, I am thinking of purchasing a pair of Dutch Bantams to show but after doing some research have read that after they have their second moult the tail and wing feathers do not grow back to the required length and so no longer can be shown. I am just starting out in Poultry and currently doing as much research as possible, I really had my heart set on these gorgeous Bantams. At what age do you guys show them to?

They were on the import list but that failed as we know. Fowlman do you know if the new syndicate has them on the list or on your list?

Yes I am in Australia and very new to poultry and in the process of finding the breed I would like to start with. I read some articles about them and liked them very much and since found out we don't have them here. I would have deleted this post if I could. :oops:

Old English Game Bantams are your answer they are very similar but warning they can be aggressive like ALL game fowls

They also come in many "colours" and are very easy to breed
