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

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

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

Ideal Poultry salmon faverolles

“I purchased 2, one week old pullets from ideal poultry in September. To my surprise they began growing black feathers instead of  white ones! I thought I had somehow got 2 roosters. I asked Ideal Poultry about this and got this response   Quote: "I talked to our farm manager and he did say that some of our females do have the black gene show up from time to time.  It is not a...” --mangobees

Porcelain d'Uccle Bantam

“I love my porcelain d'Uccle chick. I just got it two weeks ago along with some others. I have no complaints about them. They are an awesome breed! They are very pretty and cute. I'm not sure if it's a female or male, but either way it is staying. The roosters are gorgeous! I'm hoping for a female so I can watch it hatch and raise baby chicks for me. I'm definitely going to be getting some more,...” --CherriesBrood

Salmon Favorelle

Salmon Favorelle

“I currently only have one Salmon Faverolle, (a pullet named Fritzle). I had another one as a chick, but sadly she died of phnemonia, and she was going to be so gorgeous!     In terms of a good quality Salmon Faverolles she has split wing, too much black for a girl, and her tail is a little underdeveloped (plus she just loves to step in everyone's poop!). But most Salmon...” --likkatron

Silkie

Silkie

“ Silkies are a wonderful bantam pet breed in my experience.  They have funny personalities and are friendly, even with children.  They make great, nurturing mothers and even the roosters are often good with chicks.  This is why some use silkies to hatch eggs from other types of poultry.  The silkie girls were born to be mothers and often go broody.  They are...” --Shayna
