    I'm wondering what they're like. I would love to get some. How big do they get? Thanks for any info you can offer. Would love to see pics of all different colors if anyone has any.

  3. Hi!
    I have birchen Modern Game bantams [​IMG]
    They are the sweetest teeny-tiny birds with the funniest long legs.

    Here is a young pullet.

    I've got more pics in an album *somewhere online* if I can find them.

    I'd LOVE to have blues or lemon blues.

    These pictures make me laugh. Those long legs! I wonder if they run faster than other breeds?

    I love my Moderns! They are wonderful! Very sweet, easy to handle and Cornelius the rooster, he is very fun.

    Here is my Boy


    And the girls, Irene and Minnie


    GET SOME! You will love them.

    These guys are great. I've heard they are some of the friendliest you can find, and they make good broodies. I can't wait to buy some bantam eggs in the spring. They look like sandpipers! If anyone has bantams please let me know.
  10. Lol, they may make good broody hens, but they sure couldn't cover many eggs [​IMG]
    I brought Magic and Mystic in this morning for a quick pic.



    Mystic weighs a whopping 17.5 oz --- she's a fattie.
    In fact, they all are [​IMG] I've been giving them scrambled eggs every morning (I was concerned the layer pellets weren't high enough protein) and they've turned into rotten little piggies.
