    Cochins are nice, seramas, mille fleur and my OEG's are fairly calm too but, of course, my favorite would be bantam Polish. [​IMG]

    The only bantam breeding trio I have right now is bantam wyandottes. I have a blue male, 2 black females (1 has gold on her wings and is broody on 4 wyandottes eggs) and a splash female that had a stroke we believe. Let me know in the spring I might have eggs,chicks or started birds ready for sale.

    Ameraucana bantams are always fun - tiny blue eggs! It seems like there's a bantam of just about everything. How many you get is really more dependent upon how much room you have, I'd think.
