chicken Phoenix - Bantam

chicken Phoenix - Bantam

“ I had a little bantam that I originally thought was a silver duckwing, but ended up being a phoenix. He was the absolute sweetest bird I have ever had. I held him daily since he was a little cockerel and it payed off. When he would see me, he ran over to me and rubbed on my feet. I would pick him up and put him in my coat and he'd fall asleep in my jacket. He NEVER showed any aggression...” --shmccarthy

Colombian Rock

Colombian Rock

“I got my start in Columbian Plymouth Rocks (in LF) back in 2010 from a trio that came in from Canada to the Ohio Nationals.  They are typical Plymouth Rocks; great dual purpose birds.  After 3 breeding seasons I am close to having a few that I would consider showing.   My males are over 10 lbs and females are 8lbs +.  This color variety is one of the most rarely...” --Yard full o' rocks

Easter Egger bantam

Easter Egger bantam

“I purchased two pullets and a cockerel from a fellow chicken lover. I don't regret it at all. These birds aren't too flighty, and always know when it's time to roost. They are great foragers, but don't destroy anything. We kept them with full sized chickens for a while, and they were totally fine. they were only pecked two or three times, but otherwise got along just fine. I have never had a...” --Minnowey

Gold Star

Gold Star

“We have a flock of six chickens and two ducks, and we have one Gold Star. She is by far our friendliest of the flock, she comes running whenever we bring out food and treats, and was the first to be tamed and eat out of our hands. She is quiet and really sweet, and she started laying eggs at only 18 weeks old!    We're on our first chickens, but knowing the differences between our...” --Butterprint

mixed breed

mixed breed

“ Mixed Breed chickens, otherwise known as Barnyard Mutts, Mutts, or Crossbreeds, are perhaps the most useful of chickens, depending on what breeds contributed to them.   Mixed Breeds that are a cross between, say, a Leghorn and a Gold Sexlink, would most likely produce offspring that would be good layers, if hens, and possibly could be sexed at hatch time. Mixed Breeds are not...” --Chickenfan4life

Penedesenca

Penedesenca

“ The Penedesenca and Empordanesa lay very good numbers of dark brown to very dark brown eggs. ( the 140-160 on the description is incorrect imo) expect 200 to 240 a year   This breed is flighty but not aggressive . The flightiness is what makes them so great at free ranging as they are super alert. Roosters are very good protectors of there flock.   Penedesenca are also...” --Hangtown Farms
