    Mensa, you can see her pretty coloring in this shot, if not her beautiful naked neck.

    I have a little buff laced bantam pullet that I just love! Well, she's not quite a buff laced, but somewhere inbetween that and wheaten.

    Yes, please show us pics. of any odd coloured birds.

    This little girl is developing odd coloured feathers....sort of creamish blue with light brown feather edges. Feet yellowish, beak yellow with a brown spot on one side(!) and bright green eyes. What colour is she Kev? (Or anyone else who might know).

    I haven't another bird with the same colouring, but the non NN cockerel on the left has a similar feather pattern, though a bluer colouring.[​IMG]

    Any help with what colours will emerge in future generations would be extremely welcome.

    It seems that in a previous post we saw these birds, younger but I think they were the same. Are they ? I recall Kev wondering if they were dun .

    Hi everybody im going to be new to this thread as of january. Im going to have some show quality white bantam turkens for my 3rd 4-H year im very exited. I do have one question though. When i order my chicks should i get a rooster? Im going to get 3. i think that a rooster will tear up the hens and make them less disirable for the show but i kinda what to breed them. Do you think a rooster will tear up the hens? thanks

    Congrats on getting some NN...I haven't seen the bantams. Bet they are fun..and what a fun project for your child. I am not sure about the roosters..I can't have any. :( Someone will come on and give you an idea.

    Easter eggers Just like any young animal, cockerels feel a hormone surge when their bodies are changing. Most of us advise having at least 10 to 20 hens for one rooster. For your experience I would suggest that you raise your hens first and then next year, get more birds including a male. Older hens are good at teaching young males manners.
