    Hey,

    I was wanting to know which is better bantam Cochins or bantam blue laced red wyandottes. Like what are the pros and cons to each breed?


    Thanks, [​IMG]

    Cochins go broody all the time.

    BLRW don't go broody very often.

    Both are pros and cons at the same time [​IMG]

    my neighbor had bantam blrw, and they would go broody like none other. Lay 6 eggs, and bam....cant move them with a bulldozer. Also, Bantam BLRW is such a new thing, you really cant know much about them, as a 'breed'. It will all depend on what birds the person used to make the bantams...just my two cents
