What is the pro for having bantam chickens? I have noticed a lot of people want them and am just wondering what the pros are for having them besides taking up less space. Can they live in with bigger birds? I'm guessing their eggs are much smaller? Please educate me! I'm new to the chicken thing...

Yes eggs are much smaller but thier are a ton pf proes to them.

For instance mean roos are easier to control. They are easier for kids to show and handle. They can live with bigger birds but not like HUGe (turken or barahma). They are cheeper to feed house etc.

I really don't have any (I do have small breeds though Phoenix and Hamburg).
I have no Idea who is really good at them here. My one suggestion is please do not ship them with larger chicks they usually are hurt or killed.
