    I love bantams. They eat less, can be super friendly and don't need much space to be happy. I have...

    a Rosecomb Bantam "Ava":

    Old English Game Bantams *HIGHLY RECOMMEND* only get good stock, one's from quiet and tame parents.

    and I have some others too, but another favorite of mine is my "White Laced Cornish Bantam":

    Awwwww! You have such handsome birds! My favorite was the little Old English Game Bantam rooster. He was so cute underneath the Columbian hen. (Or was she Brahma?)

    Are Rosecomb bantams tamer the Old English?

    I'm think of getting sebrights to begin with, and then, after that, some cochins. I would get Old English, but I'm afraid they'll be super hyper and flighty. [​IMG]
