This is some of the buggers huddling in a corner!




Pic of my only Japanese Bantam...




Here he/she is up close!




More of the new babies...they were posing I think.




Overall the hatch rate wasn't great...11 of 28, but it beats nothing! 40% hatch rate...not bad for the first attempt!

All,

Also what do you think I should name my only Japanese Bantam? I was thinking Ronin since he's the only one. (I am a fan of Japanese history). Here are some other ideas...

Shogun -- military ruler of Japan

Daimyo -- ruler of a family or province
Ronin -- Lone Samurai with no master...wave-runner
Bakemono -- Little Goblin
Prius -- Just Kidding

Amateratsu -- Sun God of all of Japan (in ancient times)
Ashigaru -- Peasant Warrior who kicked butt
Tomodachi -- Buddy
Banzai -- BANZAI


Any more ideas????

oh, they are soooooo adorable. And that little one is extra cuteness in a small package.
I like Ronin- Lone samurai with no master. .. It seems like it'll fit that adorable teeny fuzzybutt

Ronin also means 'little seal' in Irish. It's on our baby name list.


I vote for Samurai. Call it Sammi for short.
Congrats on the hatch

Yeah I like the little guy the best. He is my smallest chick and he goes up to the leghorns and gets underneath them like they were hens and he was a...well...baby chick. Its funny and adorable all at the same time.

I WANT MORE!

Very cute.
I am going to be a hatching fool next spring.
We are buying a house with several acres of land.
