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

Belgian d' Anver

Belgian d' Anver

“ Our Belgian d'Anver rooster is fabulous! He's wonderful with the flock - very protective. He isn't aggressive, but does have a dominant demeanor. He rounds everyone up to roost in the evening. -always sounds the alarm to potential danger when the flock is roaming around and foraging. -is very friendly towards family members, and loves to perch on an arm or in the lap. He is hand fed treats,...” --TXchickmum

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

Dominique

Dominique

“I Love Dominiques! Besides being our oldest native American breed, they are specifically suited for North America. Last summer we had temperatures to 110 F for a week, and the entire summer was the warmest on record for our area. In the winter it frequently get to below 0 F. They continue to lay about 1 egg every other day. The cockerels are fantastic eating. We process ours at about 26 weeks,...” --wsmith

Golden Spangled Hamburgs

Golden Spangled Hamburgs

“I usually don't get an animal on a whim but that's exactly what happened with my Hamburg.  I had reserved three 10 week old Easter Egger pullets from a local farm-share and made the arrangements to pick them up but when I arrived, they had forgotten to crate my girls the evening before so we set out on the task of catching my little ladies, none of whom had really...” --islandgirl82

Hamburg

Hamburg

“My Avalon is the prettiest bird in a flock of 37, sporting iridescent spangles that strongly contrast blindingly white plumage. Her first egg was quite surprising for us, since we were expecting a normal white, but what we found in the nesting box bore a striking resemblance to a small, shiny, rosy pearl.   I value Avalon as a "watchbird" for our flock, as it seems that she is...” --Alexandra33

Red-Breasted Rosecomb Bantam

“I have six of these birds; they are GORGEOUS! They are the cutest little things ever! The little roosters strut around as if they own the world! I get 2 eggs a day from 5 hens. They are scared of everyone but the pros out-weigh the cons. I definitely recommend these chickens!” --austrolover1

Redcap

Redcap

“ in my opinion lovely looking birds and very unique in looks.  When given the right kind of range these birds can find a greater part of there own diet, and manage to avoid predators wile ranging through unfenced ground. The hens are capable of laying around 200 eggs a year and cockrels are capable of weighing more than 3 kgs so spare roosters can be put to some good use! this breed...” --daniel rainey

Rhode Island White

Rhode Island White

“This line of Rhode Island Whites seem to be very gentle and easy going.  They are great layers of mostly Ex-large, large and once in a while a medium sized egg.  They are truly a dual purpose in every aspect of the word.  They are a massive solid bird.    When I dressed out some cockerels at 26 weeks old they came in at an average of 5 pounds.  Mine line of Rhode...” --Rancher3535

Rosecomb

Rosecomb

“I got 2 Black Rosecombs this March from a local breeder, and I couldn't be more in love!  We have abandoned referring to them as "Rosecombs," instead pinning both pullets with a name that's much more fitting: "big, important people."  Shadow and Uni are just so full of zest and sass, you can truly say that they make up in personality what they lack in size. I even caught our...” --Alexandra33
