    I want a small flock with 3-5 hens and possibly some ducks. I live in new jersey so we have some extremes in temperature. I wanted a bantam (Besides a silkie) It needs to be friendly and looking cool is a plus.

    Sebright
    Brahma bantam
    Japanese
    Frizzle
    Another silkie
    Or take my chances with straight run modern game from ideal. I really want one but i can't afford to have a rooster

    I love my Jap bantam but I think the silver sebrights are stunning. So it would be choice between the 2 for me.

    I think Japs are really adorable and have great dispositions. [​IMG] My second choice would be the sebright.


    If you need any suggestions, old english game bantams are adorable and pretty darn cute.

    Does mypetchicken have a magazine? I'd love to order from them but do not have a credit card or a paypal account. Would like to order from them this spring but in doing so I'd have to pay by check or money order. Anyone know???

    their customer service is really good - we ordered 3 girls from them last year (sorry to the o.p. - i only ordered standards, i think bantams are adorable, but wanted bigger eggies!). really nice people, so i'm sure if you called/emailed them they would tell you if they'd accept other forms of payment - especially if you're willing to place your order in plenty of time for payment to be received and clear.
