    Someone locally is trying to help preserve this rare true bantam called the Olandsk Dwarf. I was interested in possibly getting some, but I couldn't find any information on their general size.... Everything says "small" does anyone know their general size range? Around 1.5 lbs like seabrights? Silkies/Cochins 2lbs...? Or more mid size like leghorns...4 to 5lbs...
