Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

Bantam Partridge Wyandotte

“I currently have 1 Partridge cockerel, 1 Partridge pullet, 1 Silver Pencilled Pullet and 1 Silver Laced Pullet- all of which are Bantams. Each girl gives me a small creamy/ pink egg everyday without fail and are really dedicated broodys and very protective mothers! They are absolutely stunning to look at (especially the cockerels) and are a very popular breed to show- ideal breed to start...” --DancingWthDucks

This large, tall and friendly breed is a good dual-purpose chicken. It is said to be one of the best-tasting birds to roast.

“ The two hens I had were purchased from a local lady that was moving house (England). They were 2 and a half years old, and in need of a new home. She had alot of other breeds, but these were so beautiful that they stole my vote immediately. Stunning lacing, yellow legs and very large and heavy. They are about the same size as my Brahma's. By far the most friendly hens...” --Sailing Dede

 Belgian Cuckoo Malines

Belgian Cuckoo Malines

“I've only had my Maline for a few months.   She looked full grown when I got her but she hadn't started laying yet. She is now but not every day.  For such a huge bird I was expecting bigger eggs.  She talks a lot (Ok, she squawks) but loud and often.   I can't have a rooster where I live but she might at well be one.   She doesn't mind being held for a little while and...” --St Pete Chick

He is hand fed treats,...” --TXchickmum

Belgian d'Uccle

“ These chickens are so nice, and they are real lap chickens! I have one that's the bottom of the pecking order and whenever she gets chased or pecked she'll come running to me! She loves to be snuggled! Unfortunately she is too scared too eat on her own so I have to hand feed her. And she goes through phases where she won't eat a certain type of food for a few days ,and a lot of the...” --Ducclelover10

Belgian Watermaal bantam

Belgian Watermaal bantam

“ These Watermaals are my project.  They share many personality traits with the d'Anver, the hens being very friendly, excellent mothers and average layers (I get about 4 small eggs per week per hen).  They do well in all climates, their crest keeps their rose comb warm and their small size makes them adaptable to heat as well.  They keep well in confinement and make great...” --KristenR

Bielefelder

Bielefelder

“I want to give as realistic and thorough an assessment of these birds as possible because it's far too easy to fall in love with their beauty and wonderful personalities, and miss the few potential 'negatives' about the breed. I acquired all of my birds via hatching eggs purchased and shipped from two separate breeders. My hatch rates were good, especially considering the effects of shipping,...” --DesertChic
