    Maybe she has never tasted banty eggs, I find they taste far better than 'real' eggs.

    I think your bantams are real chickens. I find it sad when people talk like that. It only makes them look stupid.
    Somebody should teach her some manners [​IMG]

    A lot of people seem to think that. Or they call bantams 'fancy' chickens. Chickens are chickens, the bantams are just cuter [​IMG]
