    I see so many beautiful Bantam breeds. At shows they seam to be more Bantams than standards. So whats the top sought after Bantam?
    I only have Standard size chickens as breeders. And I would love to add to my breeds 2 Bantam breeds for fun and the beauty. I have 1 bantam rooster and I'm planning to get him some ladies asap.
    So what breed is the top got to have beautiful Bantam?

    I don't really know what the statistics are, but the most sought after I've seen on here are seramas, silkies, and cochins. My favorite, though, are the little game bantams!

    Every show I go to there are more Old English Game bantams than any other kind. Next would be Silkies then Cochins. That has just been my experience and I have not attended that many shows.

    I've got several different bantam breeds, but I'd have to say my favorites are my bantam Cochins. They're just so full of personality.
