    Bantam cochins are sweet, lovable and cute as the dickens. But all chickens...all domesticated animals, for that matter...require "looking after." So I'd kindly suggest you do the research and find out what all it takes to raise chickens before you make the commitment.

    bantams also lay eggs. they're smaller, but not that much smaller than my medium-sized eggs from my sussex. they also peel easier fresh than full size, for reasons i don't understand

    Guineas. They are like cacti.

    Pen them up for 2-3 weeks. Feed them during this time, then you can let them out

    Do you want chickens for show? Meat? Eggs? What is your priority? There are many small breeds. Millie Fleur D'uccle is one of my personal favorites. Bantam Cochins can be beautiful as well. Bantam silkies are lovely as well. How many are you going to want and what color eggs do you want if your raising them for eggs or does it matter?
