    Bonding With Chicks?

    I have 6 pullets that are 7 months old and now they walk up to me and peck me and act as if I’m not some mean human but one of them. They didn’t act like this as chicks. They were scared and freaked out even when I looked into their brooding bin. Luckily as they matured and came out of the...

    Opinion: Japanese Bantams

    I came across some pictures of Japanese bantams and thought they were interesting(especially the tail). I have gotten advice to avoid bantams, but have seen plenty of people who own and love them. So, I figured I'd ask the good people of BYC their opinions on Japanese bantams(or just bantams in...
