Aloha Chickens

Aloha Chickens

“My Maizee is an Aloha that was rejected from the breeding group due to her green legs. Other than that, she's a perfet example of the breed. She lays beautiful smallish cream coloured eggs pretty regularly. She's still laying even though the rest of the flock is slacking. She is pretty noisy. She always greets me with a very loud welcome, and continues to welcome me about 5 minutes after I walk...” --Rezia

American Game Bantams

American Game Bantams

“These birds are absolutely incredible parents and the hens are efficient when it comes to brooding and raising young.   They don't eat much and can get 99% of it by free ranging.  A little overzealous when it comes to territory but I like having these birds around. ” --JJSS89

Bantam-Cochin

Bantam-Cochin

“ A few years ago my family and I owned a small flock of these as chicks and eventually we mixed them with another small flock of belgian d'uccles. We preferred bantams because they didn't seem to wander into the neighbors' yards. Over time though some of them died (one got eaten by a neighbor's dog, one got sick and one died on the brood), and now I only have one left. She's an old girl and...” --Min27

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

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

Belgian d'Uccle

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

Booted

Booted

“My Porcelin Booted Bantams are adorable! My rooster is very docile and never fought with the LF roosters. But we had to move the pair because he got picked on too much. They will make good lap birds if you handle them young. ” --Phoenix Farms

Brahma - Bantam

Brahma - Bantam

“ These were one of the first chickens I owned. I got them from Eagle's Nest hatchery, and they are wonderful little birds. They are full of personality, and my rooster is a gentleman, both to me and his ladies. They are shy compared to my Polish, but they are still willing to stand in your way and cluck at you. I'm glad I chose bantam buff Brahmas for some of my first chickens! The performed...” --Chic_girl

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
