Bantams



Most bantam breeds have temperaments that are suitable for children for 4H projects.  They are fun to have around and rarely need special handling.  

Although with enough room, many successfully raise bantam breed chicks with Large Fowl chicks, we do not recommend this.  We do recommend that you order 30 bantam only chicks, including Silkies and Showgirls, to raise separately.  We also have great success at raising Bantams and Guinea fowl together.

These breeds are ideal for urban living, as they take up very little room and tend to be quiet.

Bantam Marans Project

 

Another project we are working on here at County Line Hatchery.  Pictured are 2 bantam Marans eggs next to a Large Fowl Silver Laced Wyandotte egg.  Notice the roundness of the egg that is similar to the large fowl Marans eggs.  You will get a variety of colors with this stock, as we are keeping several colors in the gene pool.  Mostly you will get Blue/Black/Splash and Cuckoo.  Black Copper coloration is also possible.  We are working towards small size of the bird as well as keeping the egg color.  Keep in mind that this line is still in the developmental stage, and you can still get large fowl chicks.
