“ Of the several breeds of chicken that  I have. the Dutch Bantam is probably my favorite. The males, in particular, are very pretty, but even the females have beautiful, soft feathers and bright eyes. Often, they have "conversations" with you, making sweet chirring noises in response to your voice.

They are so beautiful and have such striking markings that even "non-chicken" people will find them impressive.  Have lots of personality and take to patient training very well. Can become quite a pet. There...” --Silseb
