    An adult pair of bantams, age unknown, we've had them around a year and think they were around a year old when we got them, so guessing they are around two years old. These are my 12 year old son's pets, he bought them with money he made doing chores last year and has raised several from them this spring and as the roosters fight each other and he only has one coop, he has to sell these to have space for his new ones.

    They are currently breeding, the hen is laying about 5 eggs a week. I know nothing about this breed, so can't tell you much about them except they are tiny and great flyers. They are great little foragers.

    They have several eggs in the coop but the hen hasn't went broody yet. Any eggs that are laid will go with them and we have a few chicks that we've hatched out of this pair that can go with them for the same price if you want them.

    All our chickens free range every other day and are feed 15% layer pellets free choice, a handfull of scratch grain twice a day and all the bugs they can find along with kitchen and garden scraps. Raised in clean coops and with clean water available at all times. I don't make pets of our chickens, but they are treated with care and respect.

    There will be NO SHIPPING. Pick up here at the farm only, or I might could you meet somewhere if not too far way. I am not NPIP certified, and not set up to ship.

    Payment can be via Paypal, cash, check, money order, goats, elephants, seals, brownies... or you can just pick them up now and pay me whener you get around to it.
    Picky I am not.

    SPECIAL NOTE: If any of our members that were affected by the recent tornados here in Mississippi or Alabama are interested the price is FREE. Just come get them and they are yours.

    Here are a couple of pictures;
