    Bantam Special
    St Run


    Bantam Special is the hatchery's choice of Pure Bred Bantams, which have not been sold as specific breed bantams and have not been used in other assortments. A nice variety of bantams will be included in this special. Ideal has more varieties of bantams than any other hatchery.
    Standard weights at maturity are male-36 oz, and hen-34 oz.

    Rec'd 12 bantams and 12 "packing peanuts"

    ~~packing peanuts~~ ....what to do with them, what to do with them!!

    I wish the "packing peanuts" were bantams but they are twice the size of the others and I don't want BIG CHICKENS!!! [​IMG]

    Looks like a bunch of OEGBs, maybe EE, a d'Uccle (GN), some Japanese (white), maybe cochin (black ones) and a Golden Sebright....not sure what that flufffy grey one is.

    The packing peanuts look like BOs to me. Nice big roosters you can send to freezer camp.
