Hi! I just recently obtained two bantam chicks and, at least temporarily I have the mom and her bff (I would like to keep the adults as well, but they are my father-in-law's, and I think he misses them, lol) The babies are mine permanently - I know they are bantams of some sort but I am not really sure if they are a specific type of chicken or maybe mutt chickens ... They are cute regardless. I will have to post pics later, maybe someone will know. Anyway - I am excited to be part of the "chicken community" - would like to learn more about my chickens and chickens in general. I would LOVE to have full size chickens one day - It would be very cool to be able to collect eggs from my backyard for breakfast! I know the little banties lay eggs, but not sure if it would be worthwhile trying to make a meal out of the little things, lol. Nice to meet you!
