    Do you realize that shipping alone on most live birds costs a minimum of $50? That would be for 1 bantam, maybe 2 depending on if the seller was close to you [​IMG]

    By the time you either pick her up and move her home or ship her she more than likely won't be broody anymore.

    I have a small groupnof RIR boys who live with our goats are think they are dogs and come when called, takenfood from your hand. They were from a hatch we did and just live the good life doing their roster thing since they aren't with our girls.
