[smilie=welcome.gif] to APF ClassRIR,

Dependant on where you live, there are a number of lines of RIW bantams that are good and breed consistant. Most breeders will be close to finishing there breeding season and some may even be willing to sell eggs if they have finished breeding. Over then next few months many will start to sell their culls, so if you are after good quality birds you may need to wait until March/April next year. Some breeders may also look to sell off some of their excess breeders. There is a risk in buying these birds, you can not ne sure if they are being sold because they are spare birds or if they failed to breed.

Have you looked up the Rhode Island Club of Australia or its branches Qld, Illawarra, Northern Rivers or Vic.
