    Has anyone gotten any Banty Easter eggers from tractor supply...I found what I'm almost sure are Easter eggers in the bantam bin at our local store the other day...I was shocked to find them just wondering if anyone else has gotten any.

    As most of the time these are simply ordered just as you find them in the bins, as "mixed bantams", it is entirely possible to find bantam EE provided the source hatchery (more than one hatchery supplies TSC, depending on location) carries these birds. If you were to post photos of them we could help you verify your thoughts on the breed of your little ones. You can also ask the staff which hatchery their chicks come from (they know, even if it takes a couple employees to find one that has the answer) and then view the hatchery site to see what bantam types they hatch.

    I have one in the brooder that I think is a bantam EE. I didn't get it from TSC (somewhere similar), but around here they order from the same hatchery.

    I'll post photos later but I'm 99% that's what they are as for asking the employees they had no idea what hatchery not to mention I had to tell the general care info lol how warm the tub should be etc. It's kinda ridiculous
