    I'm sure this is a silly question but do you all feed your banties pellets or crumbles? I have a girl that I can't keep weight on and I was wondering if the pellets are too big. Is that possible? Thanks!

    Could be possible if shes real small. I have bantams off all types and I feed pellets, Less waste. Mine all seem to eat them pretty good. Has she been wormed?

    all my silkies and bantams eat pellets, they dont have any problems, and i have some small bantams! also i see some of the wild birds sneaking the big chunks of dry dog food from my bull dogs, & they swallow those in one gulp! [​IMG] so i guess birds dont have any problems eating.
