    Silly question but..... are phoenix bantam or standard size? Thanks! My kids are already planning their flock for next spring and I don't want to mix bantam and standard.

    My rooster is comparable to a Polish...not as big as a standard, but bigger than my Silkies.

    They come in both Bantam and Standard. It's hard to find them in both sizes in most places, but they're very popular around here, so we have both. I'm raising a bantam pullet right now for showmanship, she should be pretty small.

    Standard size phoenix males should weigh 5 .5 lbs and hens 4lbs, your bantam phoenix will weigh 26oz for males and 24 oz for hens. hope that helps.
