    I am interested in any bantams! I need to get friends for my mom's hen. We just lost our last rooster and she lost her other hen and rooster months ago.

    I went to the county fair tonight. I FINALLY see the attraction to bantams! Oh my goodness they are so adorable!!
    I have a question, though. In the standards, there were a LOT of chickens labeled "pullet" with shiny saddle feathers. I thought that was just roosters? if it helps, they were RIR, BO, and LH.

    Motorcycle Chick, very interesting observation. I'm headed to the Goshen Fair this week. I'll have to check it out!

    Bantams4mom, where are you?

    Oh, you're very welcome. It was a pretty ride, and I enjoyed seeing Rodriguez and her chickies. I brought home a cute little boyfriend for my blue bantam langshan girl "Violet". [​IMG]

    Hoping someone has some insight on your observation,,,, I have 2 French Black Copper Marans that I was certain were pullets and they are very much colored like their sibling roo brothers, even have some copper feathering over their backs... I've never seen any hens with as much coloration as these birds have, many can't even get the copper to show on the neck and these have color to spare.

    Anyone have any insight on this situition ??? [​IMG]

    Yes, I still have them and yes, I'm okay with processing chickens. I've never done it before, but a guy I work with is a 'chicken guru' and he's talked me through the process a couple of times. I'm not squemish, so it shouldn't be a big deal.

    I originally built my coop for a dozen and then a neighbor wasn't able to keep her five. Space is okay right now, but with fall approaching and winter not far behind, I would like to be down to 12 before then.
