    I have many chicken breeds I really like but my favorite is Bantams and I am very partial to the Cochin bantam this is Ebby she is 8yrs old and when she laid eggs and brooded and hatched she was an awesome mama too

    I hope to have some bantams hatch this spring [​IMG]

    Some bantams continue to lay a few eggs even up to ten years and beyond.

    This is my Ameraucana chick, Eve. She's my favorite of these babies. I ordered 20 from a very reputable breeder.
    5 blues, 8 blue wheatens, & 7 blacks.
    They are 1 month old now and I couldn't be more pleased!!
    I also have a mixed flock of 14 which are all bantams except for 3 Easter Eggers, the rest are as follows!
    3 Cochins, 4 Old English game, 1 silver Sebright, 3 cute little mutts!
    We live in Hays, KS. My birds are like my pets, they are all easily handled, and very gentle. All can be picked up at any time of day. No wrangling necessary [​IMG]
