bantam breeders! ! Need some advice

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys I am wondering if you know of a way to identify bantam chicks from ''regular'' chicks. I was sold 2 chicks as cochin/wyandotte chicks and was told they were full sized birds. They are now around 9 weeks old and they are roughly the same size as my 10 week old silkie chicks. Was I sold bantams?

Bantam chicks are about half the size of regular ones, there's bantam Wyandotte and cochins, so it's certainly possible. Time will tell.
Chickens, muscovy ducks, turkeys, donkeys , goats, dogs, fish, parakeets, a parrot, and a cat.

Chickens and dogs are healing to the soul.

I brake for squirrels.

Some of my birds.

Breeder of Dutch bantams, Wyandotte bantams, and a few exhibition rabbits.

Feel free to ask me questions about chicken and rabbit care, breeds, and showing! I'm always happy to help!
