Hi im mulling over adding these quirky little birds to my flock, but i need to know if i can or am willing to give them the environment they need? I have a pen i can use for them and food wise they will be spoilt! However we do have other chickens and like our chickens to free roam on our land aprox 14 acres . We mainly have bantam x but we do have 1 or 2 that are larger . Non of which are agressive. Obviously when i want to breed from them then i dont mind them being in the pen for a few weeks but i wouldnt want them segrigated all the time. Although we have quite a few birds and many from various ex-show winning stock many years ago. They belong to my mum and aunt who unfortunately have got to the stage they struggle to cope now. So i have taken over looking after the animals , i figure if im going to do this i may aswell get some of my own chickens. Id also like to show ,maybe not at the highest of standards but just for the enjoyment of it. Would they fit in on my small farm?
