    Hi!
    I have two quick questions: Are there any hatcheries that have sexed bantams? Also, is there a good breed of roo, I mean, a kind that isn't regressive?

    Thanks

    Okay! I I'm also looking for bantam hens, I need to find a place that doesn't just have straight run.

    My Pet Chicken sells sexed bantams, they are a bit pricey. I have had good luck with my bantam cochins and D'uccle roosters not being aggressive.

    X2 on My Pet Chicken, and I have never had an aggressive Old English Game Bantam Rooster. I call them the cats of the chicken world because they are curious, will even follow us into the house, can be picked up and handled and are a lot of fun. They have something to say about everything. They have a big personality in a small body.
