Hi can anyone tell me what is the smallest type of bantam.
Is there a really small breed that can be also tamed and petted.
(Some of the smaller ones I have seen are really flighty)

Also I'm not sure if I can get Dutch Bantams in New Zealand - I have not seen them here before but then I haven't really been looking....now I will keep an eye out for them.

Oops my first reply doesn't seem to have come up.
I did want to say thanks and I liked your rats!
Do you know if Dutch bantams will become tame if handled regularly?

Thanks


The Standard describes them as sprightly, alert, and graceful and I've heard they are energetic and beautiful with sweet dispositions. I"ve never had them, so I can only go by what I've been told or read.

Very strange! they look likes something from a sci fi movie. Margaret Atwood wrote about a futuristic "chicken" called "chickyknobs" or something like that - it just ate and grew chicken meat - no feathers or wings didn't walk around etc. just grew lumps that could be processed by the fast-food industry. Looks like the Israeli scientist is on the way....

I think your bantams look a lot more attractive.
Cheers!
