    I'm looking for Nankins for my son who is seven. They are supposed to be docile yet somewhat sociable chickies. He loves spending time with the chickens we have but I'm thinking that a Nankin is a true bantam so they are small and easier to handle. Does anyone have Nankins?

    I have a young pair of Nankins (not for sale). I will have eggs/chicks next year. They are a really small bantam and are very sweet and docile. They like to stick close to the henhouse and don't tend to stray far and they tend to stay together- no wandering off. This hard to find breed is a wonderful bantam.
