    Looking for some bantams

    Hi, I'm Mikelle. I've been around a lot of chickens, but this will be my first attempt at keeping them. Would love to find a bantam breed that is a high egg producer. My home is in the mountains of southeastern Oklahoma, around Poteau. Any advice is welcome. Thanks.

    Serama / bantams with regular sized chickens

    I was thinking about getting some seramas or bantams. However I’ve never owned any just regular sized chickens. So the question is can the seramas cohabitate with the bigger chickens or do they need their own area and coop? thanks 😊
