    Bantams are great breeds for kids. While they are little, they are durable and easy for kids to handle without hurting them. However, the roosters can be extremely feisty and mean, I guess it makes up for their size. You will want to keep them in a run so they will stay safe.

    you are welcome.

    I have had both and my boys loved them. Both of those breeds put up with much more snuggles than any other breed we have had. (we have never had silkies)

    As you have already received some good advice, I will just add that I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun.

    BYC has Topic of the Week discussions which I have found to be a great resource, informative and sometimes entertaining; so definitely worth checking out.

    Including your general location on your profile will assist others. Location, climate, season etc can be important factors when members are responding to any questions you may have and vice versa.

    As Pork Pie suggested, you might want to also visit the Aussie Thread and pop in and say hello.
