    Hello, Greetings from Indiana. I'm Bill, from TnB. We have had chickens since 2008. We started with a SR of 80 chicks. Built it up to 160. Then reduced it to around 30 just for eggs for the family. We lost the whole flock to 2 predator attacks in our barn the year before T started regular 4H. Now we just raise Bantams in our garage. T loves his birds, and he has already won Poultry Junior Grand Champion, had a Reserve Grand Champion Pullet, and a Grand Champion Hen in 5 years of 4H. We have been very Blessed.

    Hi again, I have been searching the site to figure out if I have a Silver Duckwing Old English Game bantam pullet or not. I know I have one male but don't know about the other one. [​IMG][/IMG]. The combs and waddled are very different. They are the same age, four months. Thanks for your help. I can get more pictures if needed.
