    Hi all, I am in northern va. I already have a wonderful backyard of native plants and some of your run of the mill crops. I am now ready to get chickens. I will get bantams since I am low on space. Just to be clear, yes they may lay small eggs and be useful, I am really doing this because I love chickens. Any helpful advice would lovely!

    Welcome to BYC - bantams are great eye candy and many varieties produce sufficient eggs for utilization.

    Welcome! Just starting myself! This seems to be a great forum. I also got a lot of information on my local feedstore web site and at Murray McMurray Hatchery web site.
