I fell in love with a little bantam hen yesterday, but she was only being sold as part of a pair. I do not want a rooster, only because I don't want the crowing disturbing my neighbors, who have always been great and I want to keep it that way. The owner told me bantams don't crow as much and not as loud as standards. Is this true? I never thought I wanted bantams but this little hen was adorable. <sigh> I think I've lost my mind.
