By accident, i had an old english game banty from a retail store left over from the days when i was lost. I have 17 hens today and dont want to deal with roosters as im not a breeder. other than breeding this little guy provides everything a rooster can without damaging your girls, including beauty and entertainment. I get attacked hard every time i grab one, and i assume anything smaller than a grown man would really get it. Probably not for city people or households with young girls, but boy does it work well here.
