I don't think they like the cold though and they're so small the wind might blow them away if free ranging.
Guinea fowl & a lot of surplus poultry equipment.

I dont think we'd free range such a small bird, more a decent sized pen with a bad weather covered in scratching area.

They have just been accepted by the rest of the chicken.

Gorgeous . Their little heads look exactly like sebrights don't you think? Will be interesting to see what they look like in a few months time. Was this an experiment?

They are lovely looking birds - what size/colour/quantity of egg do they lay?

They look flighty to me, are they easily contained?

I have a trio of gold ones, what i want to know is what are the true traits for this bantam? ie: comb shape, lacing etc.

Here are mine here.

I think the Cockeral has a very true walnut comb for the breed? What do you think? The downsides to my cockeral is that it could have more lacing on the tail feathers.

Many thanks :lol:
