We have recently bought a bantam rooster and hen, and i think they are so cute to have feathers on their claws , she laid 8 eggs but 7 hatched out, we already had 3 bantam hens , and one of those also laid 5 eggs and all hatched out. On the same day we bought the hen and rooster, we also got 4 silkies. I never really thought i would like the idea of having chickens, but now, i see they are adorable. I grew up with a lot of animals and still have some. I have read some articles on BYC and decided to join too! This is a GREAT site!
