I grew up in rural Maine, had a couple of Seabright Bantams as pets. I bought a house in Purcellville VA that has an old coop at the back of the property, and am toying with the idea of getting some Bantys as pets. I've been reading up on Mille Fleur Duccles and would love to find someplace to get some in the spring. For some reason, watching chickens scratching around, doing their thing, makes me absurdly happy. I guess I am easily amused! Would love to hear from chicken-keeping neighbors, and especially of a source for bantams nearby.
