    Hi everyone!
    I am considering getting a buff orpington, feather footed bantam, and a golden comet. I've heard that these are very quiet breeds. Is this so based on prior experience? Thanks! Oh and do bantams get along with larger breeds of chicken?

    most bantams get along fine with LF sometimes they do get bullied but i recommend duccles because they r very docile

    I have a buff orpington, and a feather footed bantam and they're very quite. They should do good in a neighborhood where people want a little quite..but mine are both hens.. [​IMG] Also,bantams actually pick on the bigger ones in my barnyard! Mini,a serama no bigger than a soda can,beat up EVERYONE in the coop! Even the barred rock and buff orp! She was a tough little fella'. Also,the large fowl get bossed around by the seramas and small breeds we have,so I guess you could say..small but tough!! [​IMG]
