    If you have Bantam Orpingtons please answer my question.[​IMG] How are Bantam Orpingtons at laying, are they friendly, do they go broody, to they mix well with other birds, could you post some pictures, and maybe give me an average height? thanks

    Bantam Orps lay fairly well until it gets hot weather, then mine slack off. They lay as good as the standards I have. They are friendly if you spend time with them as they grow. Mine go broody twice as often as my standards do. Average height HEN= 10" maybe 11"
    Rooster= 12" to 14" [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    I just bought bantam buff orpingtons and so far theyseem to be pretty much like the big ones. I'm not sure how they will lay, mine are too young. The description says good layers of small light brown eggs. Orpingtons have a reputation for laying all through the short, dark days of the PNW winter, so I'm hoping.

    Where did you get your new chicks? Did they say that they were bantams?
