    I am thinking of ordering some New Hampshire (red) bantams from Ideal Poultry and was wondering if anyone has ordered this breed and what did you think? Did you like them? What kind of quality were they. Can someone post pics if possible?

    I'm also thinking about single comb Rhode Island Red bantams as a second choice so if anyone happens to have some from ideal please share as well.

    Thanks!

    I've never had any but I have seen both at some of the fairs I judge in the summer. It would depend on what you want them for. If just for backyard birds/pets they'd be fine. If for show don't bother. Examples of both breeds tht I've seen are like most Ideal Bantams: oversized & poorly coloured.

    If you're looking for birds with show potential there are many good breeders of both breeds. If this is your area of interest PM me & I'lls see if I can steer you to a local breeder.
