    Today I purchased 4 Bantam White Leghorns from Bishopschickens. They are the sweetest and friendliest little chickens.

    I was wondering who else has Bantam Leghorns and where they got them from? The hatcheries don't seem to have them.

    I have some and will be showing pictures of them next week in the white leghorn show in online poultry show section. [​IMG]

    I was mad at them a while back, for eating a baby pigeon, and was going to get rid of them but I changed my mind. [​IMG]

    ETA: yes mine a really lovely too and sweety pie personalities. One of them lays a slightly off-white egg. Are you going to show pictures of yours? I would love to see them.

    "One place" has some(different colors) but they are so darn expensive and everytime I have called them for information they were so rude to me that I decided to go elsewhere with my business.

    I had to replace the name with one place because I didnt want to break the rules [​IMG]

    I have a customer who asked me to adopt his leghorn bantam because its the sweetest bird in the world (and his favorite) but he got chicks this spring and a surprise rooster developed out of the chicks. He is so afraid of him hurting his baby. So knowing i have a bantam coop he wants me to take her. I did not know it was all of them......i thought it was just his. I feel sorry for it to have to join a new flock alone [​IMG] Maybe this weekend. Can you post pics of yours??????
