Ok I think I have my 2 cockerels sold so my Mom said I could get 2 more hens to replace them.

They have to be bantams so I can easily intergrate them into my bantam flock. I am wanting something showy, gentle and not to flighty.

I have been looking for Silkies EVERYWHERE which is really what I want but cant find any in my area. I have called about sets and everytime they are sold.

Any other bantam breeds that meet that criteria?? If it is a weird/not very well known breed could you maybe post a pic??

Thanks to everyone in advance!!!

Wyandotte ! I absolutely love their different feather patterns ! I only have one banty Wyandotte in my flock, and she thinks she's full size. She is soooo sweet.

SERAMA!!!!! They have only been in the USA since 2001 and they are between 8-16oz in weight!

Here is my first Serama and the one who got me hooked on the breed, Her name is Star
She's about 10-12 weeks old now (I think without going to a calander..) and she's smaller then the Silkies I have who are younger then her by 5 or so weeks!!
Only downfall to them is they dont winter well so they would need artifical heat.. Im bringing mine inside this winter!

you could order silkies from a hatchery. bantam cochin (they come in normal feathered and frizzled), favorelle's, almost every breed comes in standerd and bantam, nankin check at purley poultry they have almost all these breeds. u could get a pair of bantam ducks
they would happily live with chickens (calls, east indea's, australian spotted, silkie, mini overberg and mini appleyard- all are available at Holdereads waterfowl they will be shipped as adults in the fall, which is more pricey, or as ducklings in the spring- the ducklings do come sexed i believe- u can get a bantam duckling assortment if u can't decide.)
