It actually has more to do with breed than wether or not you have a 'bantam' sized bird. For example, there is such a thing as a bantam Leghorn. And I personally don't hate myself enough to try to get one of those to go broody .Your thread made me think of something. Quick question, of all of my girls, my bantam is the only one who has ever gone broody, and she is now on her third round of brooding since Easter. Is this normal behavior for bantys, do they tend to be more broody than others? Your liittle mommy is so beautiful!
