I need small chickens not to big and not hard to look after
What Breeds ? could i have ?
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
i know all chickens take alot looking after i just need a small breed that wont take up a lot of room
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?
Show and eggs and for breeding and i don't care what colour they are, and about 10-15 chickens
could you get pictures of these breeds please
most breeds with pictures.
