    I would like a pair of bantams that are extremly freindly for my 3 year old. He does a great job with the ones we have now but they dont like being picked up and they are standard size. I would like feather footed ones that love to be hugged and carried around:D. We live in north central ohio. Thanks

    Hey there, if you ever come to KY, I have some young bantam cochins. They are feather-footed, and the cochins are well-known for their lap-bird status [​IMG] Let me know if you're interested [​IMG]

    Quote:I'd suggest bantam cochins for a child so young. They tend to be very tolerant in handling and can be quite friendly and sweet. D'Anvers are small and also very curious and friendly. D'Anvers don't have feathered feet though. D'Uccles do and they can be quite friendly if raised with lots of handling. My little Old English love to be held but they again, are clean legged. A frizzle cochin may interest him too with the curly feathers and cochin disposition. [​IMG]

    Sorry, I don't have any at this time but thought I'd mention some good types for a youngster like your son [​IMG]

    Thanks for your info. I think we will be getting a cochin pair for him. Someone had partridge ones for sale but he did not like the colors. He wants something very colorful. We are going to the poultry nationals in two weeks so I will let him look there. I think he would like the millie fleur color are lemon blue for cochins.
