    Here she is with one of her bitties.
    I have 2 Banties, and they are great for small batch incubation.

    Too much.

    I have 3 broodies currently. One EE bantam, one silky, and one EEbantam silky mix. The EE bantam is a real fine mother, but she always acts done at 6 weeks. the silky was a good mom but not overly protective, although this year she is more.and the silky's baby is 9 weeks old and she still babies it. The EE bantam silky mix is one tough little lady. last year raised baby ducks. but then as the ducks got older, they still wanted to love her and she was mad at them for growing up and becoming ducks.
