In a nutshell. I've had three backyard bantams, and i fell in LOOOVE with them. I've also had a second hand/give away African Grey parrot for 11 years. I'm not a stranger to birds. I'm also a CVT/LVT of 20 years. I no longer have my hens, and Agador the Grey, passed last week I always joked that I would get chickens again. However my living situation is different. I am seeking a INDOOR PET chicken. (She will not be kept in cage inside, and has small outdoor area to have supervised play. She will also go everywhere with me. I know some people are against this, but I don't care to argue that point ATM) My delimma: I want a brown color and i like the look of fat round chickies. I can't order anything online because of the minimums during chick season. Local breeders have some bantams, but either I dont want the breed or its not guaranteed to be female I found pullets locally (Golden comets or Bielefelder) where I know the sex but they are going to weigh 5-6lbs/10lbs Do I hold out on the hopes of some local breeder having a buff orph or welsummer bantam pullet?? Or get the smaller Golden comet/sexlink and start my snuggling with it now? *I would really like to have the Bielefelder, but honestly think a 10lb hen might be a bit much in the house. Although it would be amusing to see a chicken bigger than my cat. lol. Sorry about it being half bolded text...it wont unbold Thanks guys!
