Yay, a bantam thread! I love my bantams (almost more than my large fowl... just don't tell them I said that). I have cochins, EEs, dark brahmas, a silkie, and a D'uccle. Cochin bantams are the absolute best and I definitely always want one in a flock!

What type of larger fowl do you have? Guineas, peacocks, or pheasants?

I'm another bantam lover! They are so adorable. We have Old English Game bantams, Booted bantams (in New Zealand there aren't great looking but they are sweet), and Pekin (Cochin) bantams. I like our little chickens more than our large breeds.

Wow Jae! Have you submitted any of these to the calendar contest? You'd have a great shot, these are amazing pics. This is a fun thread btw @cherrynberry ! I have a Buff Brahma bantam roo that I rescued as a sickly 3 week old. He was very skinny and sadly the rest of his brood wasn't so lucky. He's a sweet boy though and has had 8 babies this spring. He fertilizes my LF hen's eggs really well. I haven't seen an infertile egg in a long time. He does a good job. He isn't very good quality, but he's my good boy. Here's a pic of him with his 5 babies. He's very busy rushing around and tending his girls so I almost never get clear pics of him. Lol
