    Well its not really old i just got it last year.But my oldest wants to show chickens in the open class this year . We looked around and thought lets show some bantams that are a it rarer around here. We picked Dutch Bantams and they will be shipped mondays [​IMG]. I thought they are soooo cute and even tinier than my Millie I used to have. I will be starting my port-a-coop this week. Now i just have to break it to my unsuspecting husband. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Quote:I am looking forward to them. I wanted really small chickens that still lay well. DD Taylor Ann wanted the d uccles again but you know our weather and their feathered feet dont do so well. So we picked the Dutch. I like the story behind them that the peasants only could keep small eggs and had to give the large eggs to their king/lord/master or whatever you called the dude.
