Hi folks, We just lost our girls to a predator this Fall and plan to go through the winter without any chickens. We are looking to get some more in the Spring and wondered if there was a bantam breed that were good layers and not frequently broody. We had 3 Ameracauna bantams, but they were not regular layers and it seemed like we always had somebody who was broody. (Sometimes 2 at a time!) We love the bantam size. Also, are there any breeds that you can sex at an early age. We got our last girls as 6 month old pullets. I'd loved to get some younger ones, but our City ordinance does not allow any roos. Any advice would be appreciated. We are really missing our little girls.
