I would love suggestions on a banty coops if any of you all have pictures of your setup.I want to keep them seperate from the big girls for now. I have an old rabbit hutch that I might repurpose for the little guys but I'd like to see a few pictures of banty coops that aren't on the main forum. Thanks.
If Mt. Healthy Hatchery is the supplier for your area TSCs like they are for mine, this is what they told me last week about the bantams they sell:
"We only sell Bantams in an assortment of as hatched consisting of Mille Fleur, Golden Seabright, Red Pyle Old English and the Black and White Silkies."
I'm not interested in any of those breeds, so I asked if they had bantams in Cochins, Brahmas, or Orpingtons. They said no, so it's not likely you have bantam Cochins. Silkies maybe?
