Chamoise Friesian (Rare) These are a rare and ancient breed from Friesland in the Netherlands, introduced into the UK in the 1990's.   They are a small sized active breed, available in large and bantam - the large is the same size as a buff rock bantam. For their size they lay relatively large white eggs of around 225 per year.  They are very hardy, friendly, characterful, very inquisitive birds and prefer to be free ranged. These are bred from National Show Winning Stock.
Booted Bantams - Lemon and Gold Millifleur, Porcelein, Black, Silver and Gold Birchen Originally from Holland (Sabelpoots) the Booted bantam is small, similar to a Pekin and very docile.  Ideal around the garden as due to the foot feathering they dont scratch around quite as much as other breeds. They lay around 150 white or tinted eggs per year.  Jane has won many trophies with this breed and is treasurer of the Booted Bantam Society.   These are bred from National Show Winning Stock.
Plymouth Rock Bantam - Buff First developed in Massachusetts USA in the 1820s,  they are very friendly, happy to be handled and is well known for their placid, docile friendly temperament. Many of the POL Hybrids seen today have Plymouth Rock roots. This breed is easily tamed and make ideal pets and can lay up to 200 very useful sized tinted eggs per year.   These are bred from Show Winning Stock
Bantam (mini) Silkies - white and Gold Laying on and off all year around they will lay around 100 tinted eggs per year.  They are renowed for “sitting”, ie going broody, which they will do all year around, often in the late spring when most other hens are in full lay.   They should have black skin and 5 toes, unlike other breeds with red/pink skin and 4 toes.  Ideal as pets, hardy with restricted sight due to their fluffy heads.  Please note it is not possible to sex the white silkies  accurately until approx 16-20 weeks, so they are all sold as unsexed!
Welbar Bantam - Gold and Silver (Rare, RSBT Watchlist) Extremely friendly and easily handled, placid and docile.  These are an autosexing Welsummer developed in the 1940s (you can sex the chicks at day old).   Like the welsummer, they lay dark brown eggs and are excellent layers, laying around 250 eggs per year.  The Golds are the best bantam in our opinion as they lay almost as many eggs as the hybrid layers. The Silvers are much rarer and still in need of some development to make them as productive as their Gold cousins.These are bred from Show Winning Stock
Wybar Bantam - Silver Laced (Extremely Rare, the RSBT are not aware this breed exists) Created we believe from a Silver Laced Wynadotte, a cuckoo marans and Brussbar in the 1950s as a triple purpose bird, ie egg laying, meat and show, they were not available in great numbers and it seems pretty much died out completely.  Recreated possibly in the 1970s as a bantam these are extremely rare now, in danger of dying out and only bred and shown by a handful of breeders in small numbers.   These are basically an autosexing Silver Laced Wynadotte (you can sex the chicks at day old).  They can produce up to 150 tinted eggs per year, they are similar in size to the Bantam Plymouth Rock and of similar easy going temperament.  Compared with a Silver Laced Wynadotte, the Wybar has a barred tail, belly and thighs and has slighly lighter black lacing.  Bred from Show stock.  
Large Breeds Buff Brahma (Rare colour) These are a very large breed thought to be developed in the US in the late 1840s.  Probably the largest breed of chicken, (larger than the buff orpington) an extremely gentle bird with feathered feet.  Confinement is not a problem, they wont wander very far even given the opportunity. They lay around 150 medium sized eggs per year.  They are extremely docile and placid, ideal for the larger garden.   These are bred from Show Winning stock.
