Beautiful flock. Oh my. I am swooningWe've had chickens for the past 14 years or so...started with guinea fowl - big mistake! then got some speckled Sussex bantams which I wish we still had and then over the years a mish-mosh of large fowl, including easter eggers, black copper marans, welsummers, etc. We started out with chocolate wyandotte bantams in 2014 and have been hooked on Wyandotte bantams since then though we do have a few wheaten ameraucana bantam hens......we just got the chocolate wyandotte bantams recognized by the ABA this past December! We currently have black, chocolate, blue, partridge, mottled and chocolate partridge......
