    If I were to get two bantams...what assortment would you pick from below?

    A. Blue/Black/ Splash Silkie + Mottled Cochin (I think I'd like Cochins, I just don't like this coloring as much)
    B. Blue/ Black/ Splash Silkie + Black Frizzle Cochin ( yeah they're cute, but they're a little....odd)
    C. White Silkie + Black Silkie
    D. Silkie + Buff Brahama
    E. Cochin + Buff Brahama
    F. Other (please specify!)

    Thanks!

    Such a personal choice, but I like the silkie, and frizzle cochin combination. I just happen to have one of each of those. I just love them!

    I like Old English Game bantams: they're sleek and elegant looking, easy to find and easy to keep, and they come is so many wonderful colors.

    i have only owned oegb and japanese, i'd choose oegb hands down if i were to get more bantams. mine went broody and was a great mother, full of attitude and personality and pretty. i dont get more because straight combes freeze here where i am and i dont like to dub mine. oh, i've had sumatra bantams to.

    Quote:Are you ordering from the mpc site? I only ask because...they opened their ordering today...and that sounds like their inventory.... If so you might have to remove some of those choices. I don't see availability for the Mottled Cochin or the Frizzle...I didn't check all of the others and I don't know if they will add more availability later...but so far out of my seven mixed bantams I like my araucanas the best...(unfortunately you won't find those at mpc... ;-( )
