    I bought 6 chickens for the first time at TS and they told me they were bantams. I bought them in march. I looked up bantams and these do not look like it. Please help.

    :welcome! There are a lot of different breeds of bantams that look totally different from each other. Can you post pictures of them?

    Hi, welcome to byc. [​IMG]

    There are many bantam breeds, it refers to their size. Meaning they are smaller.

    Are you uploading them directly to BYC? You should be able to by clicking the icon that looks like a moon above some mountains when posting. If that doesn't work you could always upload them to a site like Imgur and post the link here.
