I have been looking to buy some Dark Cornish in my local area. TA DA (I thought) when I found an ad for Dark Cornish chicks. I called the guy and he agreed to hold them until I could get there over the weekend. Got there, he pulled out the 5 I wanted, and "threw in" 2 extra for my son (he's 6, and went with me to pick up my "Mother's Day" present...) As I was putting them on my son's lap, the guy says to me "you knew these were little guys, right?" Well, being so excited about finally finding Dark Cornish, I said "yes". Thinking to myself - they were week old chicks, why wouldn't they be "little guys"? Okay, make a long story short, I now believe he meant BANTAMS! Never occurred to me to ask at the time - rookie mistake? I would've thought they would have been advertised as bantams, but they weren't and now I've got 7 beautiful little (and I do mean LITTLE!) chicks that I have no CLUE what to do with! No offense to those of you who are banty fans, but what does one do with them? I can't imagine they will ever get big enough to eat, and it would take a few more eggs than ususal to make breakfast. They are absolutely adorable, but can they be useful? I've got a plan for the space I have available, and it didn't include bantam cornish. Anybody got ideas? Thanks!
