I keep silkies and though classed as LF they are bantam sized and I also have minatures as well as my guineas I think we need more catargories :oops:

I have both large fowl and Bantams. I love both and with having children I wanted them to have breeds they could handle.

I have both

6 speckledys
trio gold dutch bantams
2 sulmtaler x pekin bantam hens
9 partridge wyandotte bantams
plus lots bantam chicks, many varieties :roll:

I will find the results interesting as I have been hatching bantams, but wondering whether everyone is going to favour large fowl
For all the troubles in the world, I turn to ducks...

i started many years ago(and no i wont tell you how many) with bantams but over the years they have seemed to lose my favoritism in favour of LF so now its all LF except for the jappys and they are just for the sheer hell of it
