    Kids are chicken crazy. We would like to add a modern game variety to our small flock. (3 silkies, sebright, old english bantam). I heard some of the game type of chickens are very friendly. Any advice appreciated. Eggs or chicks. Thanks a lot!!

    Where are you located? What color are you looking for? How many are you looking for? Modern game bantams are wonderful. My 8 year old carries his around and they dont budge. They seem to enjoy it. They are more friendly than the dutch bantams and old english. You cant go wrong with a modern. What are your plans with the bird(s)? Are you looking to show or just a pet?

    My son(10) LOVES [​IMG] his modern game hen. He carrys her around and messes with her ALL the time. He plans to take her to a show on March 7th. He is wanting more, but I am having a hard time finding him any here.
    I believe they are a perfect kids bird!
