  1. I havent seen this post anywhere.
    I have bantam farmyard crosses and an Ameraucana rooster together. He mates them all the time, would that create a bantam? Or will that breed the small size out of the bantams?

    Quote:usually it makes 'tweeners', if the eggs get fertilized, and hatch... tweeners, are birds that are too big for bantam size, but too small for LF.

    actually, truth be told... most hatchery quality birds, are tweeners.. they are birds that are underweight of the SOP, but still are close to looking like the breed they are supposed to be.
     
  3. Our bantams were free from my in laws. I wanted to breed the size out of them.
