    Hi Jim,

    Can you be a bit more specific about the type you're after? Do you want bantams or lightweight largefowl? (There's different weight categories based on the old cockfighting rules).
    Also, what variation are you interested in? e.g., Oxford or Carlisle? (The Carlisle is the more stocky type with less tail, the Oxford is more lithe).

    i think im looking for something along the golden duckwing variety

    Golden Duckwing is a colour variation. You can get Golden Duckwing in different sizes, and as either Oxford or Carlisle type.

    I had to get rid of our two last year, they attacked all visitors.

    Jim,
    My young lad earns his pocket money by breeding Oxfords, and he shows them at local events, with moderate success.
    His are in the lightest weight category of largefowl (ie, they're just a little bigger than a bantam).
    He's got Golden Duckwing and Black Red.
    There's a few young birds for sale at the moment, but it's a long way from North wales to Yorkshire!
    However, if you don't find anything closer to home he could send you some hatching eggs when they come into lay.
