Just a question, maybe ya'll would know the answer.
I love RIR as I grew up with them since I was little. The roommate works at the feed store & they got in the last shipment of standard sized Rhoade Island Reds for this season.
It looks like I'll be having to keep the banty mixed chicks I hatched out for my uncle but the RIR are looking too good to pass up another year. I just love their personality. I think I have seen banty RIR. Does anyone know if the banty RIR have about the same kind of temperament the standard fowl do? I am not wanting some spazzy, flighty banty that hates people or it's own shadow.
I remember them being calm, sweet & liking people. A little uppity at times but mostly the big guy, we did have a flock around 40 from when I was a baby til high school but they were always Reds.
