If you can direct me to other threads or posts, great, but I really want to know the difference. I have standard Delawares. There are banty Dels - they are rare, but they are out there. Is it just the weight and relatively small size, or lineage? Two of my Dels are very small compared to the others. If they stay small, and breed on small, do they get to be banties? Or are they just vertically challenged standards? I am wondering, because I think one is a roo, one a pullet, and I could give them their own little breeding area if they would qualify.
