    Check out bantams, most normal breeds have a bantam realtive. [​IMG]

    But the 2nd smallest is the Chabo or Japanese Bantam.

    Read up on Japanese bantams first..they are not the breef for novices I have been told because of their requirements. I thought about getting them, but read that in one of my books.....I have the Mille Fleur D'Uccles...they are so cool...I also have standard size chickens. But my bantams are way cool.
