    I am making my wish list for my spring order of chicks. I am going to get about 9-12 bantams and want a variety of egg colors.

    So far I am getting some cochins, d'uccles, EE, RIR, and Wyandottes all in the bantam size. I also want a breed that will lay a true white egg.

    They will not free range, so they need to tolerate confinement and I don't want any aggressive breed.

    What do you suggest?

    I have 2 hatchery bantam white crested black polish that lay a nice medium white egg on a regular basis. They are not super friendly...a little spooky, but I got them as a rescue and never got to work with them when they were little. They are certainly not mean...kinda shy, and I like their poofy little hair-do's.
