    *I apologize if this thread is in the wrong place!*

    So I'm hoping some of you folks might have a photo or two of a full size chicken (any kind) with a bantam (any kind). I'm trying to show my husband and my MIL about the size differences as well as the fact that there are many types lovely little bantams!

    What do you all think?
    I'm thinking I might be able to have a little more lee-way with the dreaded "chicken math" if I prove to my husband that more bantams will be more cost effective (and fun) than only having full size chickens! (to be fair I'm a little intimidated by the full size chickens).

    I need to get updated photos anyhow so I'll make sure to get my little rooster sneaking up on a Large Fowl hen. :)
    Just hatched one of my LF eggs and found my bantam is the daddy. :lol:

    YES! I have some photos like that!

    This is Sabre, an EE roo, and Jelly Bean, a bantam sultan pullet.

    Hard to tell, but three EEs, and a bantam frizzle cochin (white, well, technically splash) and a bantam cochin x silkie (blue) rooster

    [​IMG]

    The same two banties, and one of the standards (my rather large Easter Egger, Waffle) from the previous picture.

    [​IMG] You can see my silkie (bantam) in the middle of all the standard chaos. Silkies are the only bantams I have right now. [​IMG] Here's another one :) [​IMG]
