I've just been introduced to these beautiful birds while researching what breeds I will be getting this spring. Does anybody have any experience with them? I've never thought of getting Bantams, but have falling madly and deeply in love with this breed. I have read that they tolerate heat and cold well, but special care is needed as chicks as they mature slowly, and that their combs are more vunerable. How do you think they might fare here in the frigid Northeast of New England? Am I biting off more than I can chew or what special accomadations can I make for them during the winter months. Thanking you all in advance.
