    I went to the feed store yesterday- they take in roosters because the city doesn't allow them and had about 5-6 bantam roosters running around. I had been wanting a bantam rooster (I"m in the county)- they said I could "try him out" to see if he'd get along with my hens and would take him back if it didn't. Fortunately he is doing okay- he's about the same size as my hens and isn't too aggressive. Oh, they had a young bantam silkie roo that I couldn't pass up....he's the sweetest thing, the hens didn't give him a second thought.

    Does anyone know what breed he is? The guys at the feed store weren't sure.....

    He is either a poor quality Belgian Bearded D'anvers or a mix with D'anvers blood. :)
