A snake has been slowly taking our chicks (we finally found out that's why chicks were disappearing when I went out to the barn earlier than usual) so now we're down to 3. I'm wanting to purchase some new chicks and was looking for suggestions on what to choose. We've decided on bantams, we love their smaller size and temperaments. What I'm looking for is a bantam that's generally a good layer (3-4 eggs/wk) and, if it isn't asking too much, could potentially be a decent meat breed. I know that's a tall order for a bantam but any suggestions on breed?
