    I am looking into selling two of my chickens, and getting two new hens to be with my silkie and cochin bantam. I've been doing some research, and I'm thinking about Porcelain Millie Flur Bantams, more Silkies, Buff Brahma Bantams, or Golden/Silver Sebright Bantams. I've always loved Porcelains, I could play it safe with Silkies, a friend of mine has really nice Brahamas, and the Seabrights would be fun to show. Which breed should I get???

    It depends on what your looking for. If you want a free range bantam and you live were theres preditors i would choose sebrights or duccles because they are good flyers. But if you would like a calm chicken that you can hold duccles in my experience are good for that to but i would also consider you getting silkies or brahmas. I hope this helps.

    If it were me, I would get a Silkie. They are pretty, cute, and sweet birds.
    But if you want a bird for show, I would suggest a silver sebright.
