    Woopsy! How did those little chicks get into my bag! I texted hubby, "I was attacked by a bin of bantam chicks at the feed store. Managed to fight off all but 2." [​IMG]

    What do you think these cuties are? The folks working there just said they were from Mt Healthy. No chart or pictures. Got home and went to Mt Healthy site - all their description of their bantam assortment is, "Known as the "Flower Garden" of the poultry world because of their beautiful coloring. They are about 1/4 size of standard bred chickens and are perfect for pets and exhibition. You will truly fall in love with these beautiful birds." Not much help.
