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

Easter Eggers

“ Of all the hens I have had over the years, my EE (named Cheeks) is the oldest, healthiest, and most predator savy.  She is going on 7 years old now and my chickens always free range.  We have a light predator load here, but we did have one fox attack, and numerous hawk attacks over the years.  She was hatched on my farm from an egg, and she has never been sickly, or...” --RaeRae2

Euskal Oiloa - Marraduna Basque

“     I am babysitting my grandmother's Basque pullet, and she scares me. I love chickens, but this girl is seriously like The Orphan crazy. She is little and cute with a buff color and a black tail (I do not know the names). I do not know if she is crazy because she was always picked on in a tiny, barren run, but I do know I do not trust her at all. She always has a...” --Free Feather

Favacauna

Favacauna

“   My Favacauna named Raven is the nicest thing, and she lays a large green egg nearly every day. Her feathers have a beautiful blue shine and I absolutely love her feather cheeks.  If you are looking to get one of these chickens, know that they won't be on the bottom of the pecking order, as mine has managed to become the most dominant of my flock. One thing that apparently...” --BlueJuniper

Faverolles

Faverolles

“ Faverolles are super-duper sweet birds. They are nice, calm, and tolerate confinement well. They are so mellow and laid back, and so beautiful and adorable. I always will have a Faverolle in my flock. The eggs from the hens are big and brown, and the roosters are very sweet. ” --TheCrazyClucker

Fayoumis

Fayoumis

“I had a beautiful flock of Fayoumis at one time. I loved watching them and wanted to keep them forever! However, the roosters became too noisy as they grew up. They would crow almost constantly when I was outside. They crowed so much that I became embarrassed and felt sorry for our neighbors.   The egg size is small. The pullet eggs we were getting were bantam sized. I am sure they would...” --ChickensAreSweet

Freedom Ranger

Freedom Ranger

“I have raised Cornish Cross meat chickens for the past 10 years, and one day I went to take my batch of 75 to process and some guy suggested I raise some Freedom Rangers or commonly called Red Rangers.   So the next year I raised a batch of 25 of the FR/RR and was not impressed.   Let's take a step back to that fateful day when I went to the butcher... That man's FR/RR chickens had...” --MorganC
