    Deerling's comment about her Banties being not really a part of the rest of the flock made me think. I don't have them because I wanted BIG fluffy chickens and had read that Banties sometimes need their own coops. I plan to have a retired hen pen as my girls age out of productivity and Della is a problematic layer and I would never get rid of her because of it so I totally get having chickens that don't have an obvious use just because they make you happy. So is that why people have Banties? Just because having pretty little mini chickens makes you smile? (which is an absolutely valid reason) Or is there something I am missing.

    It's like quail, I didn't know why people hatched them unless it was to set them free in their yard but now I know that their eggs have added benefits and that people raise them for meat too. Educate me please :)

    Baby spots, sometimes will start out with just one tiny black feather.

    And look at that cute black bottom, she seems to be a bit more bare than many, [​IMG]

    I kind of like the smaller eggs the Bantams provide.
    [​IMG] That's just not right! There really needs to be a caption on that last one...... Poor girl posting her butt on a public forum like that!!! That is a non-fuzzy butt.

    Cute tidbit - for some reason our weirdo Salmon Favorolle roo Balthazar seems to really love our Polish roo, Iorek. He follows him around and they're buddies. Today Balthazar was preening Iorek's mohawk and Iorek, in turn, was preening Balthazar's beard. So cute!! I wish I would have named them Legolas and Gimli.

    Get a picture! Chicken Bromance [​IMG]



    I love you man!!!!
