    I can't wait for my little ones to arrive. I won't be keeping any roos unless they are pintsize then i might buy diapers.
    I will be posting pics on this thread to follow up when they show up and grow.

    You did not say if they are straight run or sexed. We need this before responding to the poll. If straight run then probably about 1/2. I sexed then I would guess 3 or 4 (10%).

    Cute birds in the photos. I ave never raised bantams. I only raise full size.

    Looks like you are having problems with shavings in the feeder. If you elevate it on a block of wood it will make a huge difference in reducing the amount of shavings it it.
     
  5. i know it seems weird but expect a lot of hens. Everyone says that if the run is straight your gonna get a lot of roosters but in the years we have ordered (per batch) it seems we get like 3 or so roosters. HAVE FUN THEIR ADORABLE

    I'm laughing over the bottle of 'Miracle Gro" in the background. Planning on forcing those bantams grow larger? [​IMG] Seriously, those are cute chicks. Congratulations!

    [​IMG] Miracle Gro doesn't make grow faster or larger, it makes them divide and multiply! Look at them all!
