    used to have regualar, leghorns and the were chattery.flighty and really scared, bantans are suppose to be worse.. great egg layers.. but i've heard storys of how wonderful they are, so its a prefereance.. I guess

    I have 2 standard Leghorn girls and they are lovely. Energetic, but not flighty at all, they are sweet and love to be cuddled. I'm not sure how different the Bantams would be, but my standards are awesome.

    thanks, have read up some more and they seem to be classed as flighty, not much use to me then. What would be a good calmer breed? to mix with oegbs? have a minorca in with em which is a nice bird but bit nervous at the min cos is young.

    Honestly I think it's more in how you raise them. My Leghorns have never been flighty, they are some of my favorites. I have never kept OEGBs so I don't know specifically what would go well with them. [​IMG]
