    I got a .99 cent assortment from Ideal Poultry last fall. This little bird is one of that bunch. She is VERY small compared to the rest. She is a little flighty, but settles right down and is gentle once I catch her. I like her A LOT and would like to know what she is (I think it is a little hen) so I could purchase more like her. You can see how small she is by the size of my hand compared to her. I highly HIGHLY recommend the .99 cent fall mixed straight run bantys from Ideal. They are a great company and I got a really really nice assortment. I lost over half due to sudden cold snap while in shipment, but they replaced them no problem. If they offer it again this year, I will definitely buy 50 or maybe 100...very very nice little birds

    Ditto...I got four of them last year and they are the sweetest little things! Love to be picked up and held. I also had two of them go broody in the fall.
