My daughter is now 4 and Im wanting to get her started in showing chickens at the state fair. Im not very familiar with bantams but since shes so small I thought that might be a good place to start?? I was wondering if any of you bantams lovers can recommend a good calm starter breed for her. Maybe a cochin or bramha??

Thanks.. Renae

My choice would be an OEGB. They are so sweet and docile, even the roos!!! My 8 year old just loves them and they are pocket sized :) Our bantam cochins and our bantam brahma are also really sweet, loveable birds. I just like the size and ease of handling with the OEGB.
