    I went to Atwoods today...and there they were. A blue (possibly lemon blue?) and a black. SO cute. I couldn't resist so I got two of them. I'm used to my noiseless Langshans! How can such a tiny chick make SO much noise!

    I just found this thread, and love it because I got two Modern Bantams for my daughter. She liked the look of them because she said they looked like her (long legs [​IMG] ) I've been trying to figure out the colors and by looking at this thread I think we have a blue! So exciting! The other is all black, but they are still chicks (only 2 1/2 weeks) I can't wait to see them grown. My daughter wants to join 4H when she turns 5 this summer and these look like a great pick! Well here are our two Modern Bantams, at a few days old (I really need to get that camera charged)

    This is "Stretch"

    And "Slim"
