    This is my story....
    Once upon a time I wanted two hens to lay eggs for our family. I went to the tractor supply store last April and asked to purchase two hens. They told me "oh no you must buy SIX!" This was due to some rule they told me. So I went home with 5 female birds and one unknown banti. A month or so after I had them I called to store to find out what kind of hens I had, they thought it may be new tetra tints, but when I looked at pictures of them there was no way! After sending pictures to mthealthy, they informed me I had golden comets. The banti was still unknown. Well here it is 3 1/2 months later and I have the 5 comets that are as squacky as ever, they make a moaning/goose sound. And the banti, well turns out its a rooster of the japanese kind. He wants to be bad but he is much too little to scare me :) These chickens follow me all over the place just to beg for a snack, so I have dubbed them as "chickadogs". Well now I am just waiting for those hens to start laying!
