I was told it was royal palm, but wanted to make sure. Thanks
I researched it when I wanted my little guy and they told me midget whites were the smallest of the "non commercial eating type" whatever you call it. Your poults are beautiful. Mine is 2 days old and I have to encourage it to eat. It's with 4 small chicks in the brooder. It also has yellow diarreha which has a strange odor. Have you had any problems with your little guys with that?
No. Not yellow diahrrea. The eating thing yes. Had 4 eastern wilds that wouldn't eat. They finally got it. Then dogs got them.
Quote:The smallest are Midget Whites and Beltsville Small Whites.

here's a midget white:
He's 2 1/2 yrs and been free range for over a yr
Quote:Pretty! Do all the hatcheries carry them?
no they are hard to find but I think sandspoultry on here has them, I whould have them but my blue palm got out and he might have got the midget hens if you know what I mean.
Quote:But Blue Midgets or Midget Palms might be cute!
Here are some pics of Midgets and Belts
They are just about the same size but the Belts are wider in the breast area. The Belts are the better layers of the 2 but the Midgets are the better tasting of the two,
