I love bantams! I have several of them.Well, that picture is from Wikipedia. Mine are about HALF that size, and the poop...well, I just can't believe it came from a chicken! What's it going to be like when they are full grown.
Note to self #2: from now on, bantams.
The first time we had a broody hen, me and my brother were out there checking her out. I guess she didnt like that, because she turned around and laid before our eyes a turd bigger than the biggest double yolker our hens have ever laid! being so mature, we ran inside and told our mom, then I ran back and cleaned it up. The sound was so much worse than the poop, I'm still a little shaken up about that to this day. She was Ms. Broody, our black australorp hen, and a terrible mom... I miss her and her crazy waysI can't imagine. I now have FIVE, count them FIVE, English Orps. I think this is the first time anyone has ever said "Thank the Lord, I have two roosters."
