We've just been given some young bantams and would appreciate basic advice on their care. We have kept turkeys and laying hens previously but this is the first time that we have had banties. The banties are for eggs and breeding. We aren't into killing them for meat. There's one young cockerel and three younger, immature hens. They came from a free range flock that roosts in trees, forages during the day and is given rice. Our four are now in the old turkey coop with food and perches. We were advised to keep them like that for a few days so that they can settle in and accept our land as their new home. They have been nervous during their first 24 hours but were roosting this evening and the cock was making himself heard. They haven't eaten yet or taken water. Once they are settled, we can offer them plenty of land to explore and a range of trees to roost in if that is their preference. I won't poke a camera at them until they have settled but the cock stands proud with beautiful red hackles and they all look healthy. I have no idea about their origin but most banties here descend from wild varieties. Vets. bills here are cheap but we were told that they won't need injections, unlike out previous turkeys. As I said, any basic advice for us novices would be welcome, please.
