I keep meaning to post about my new little banties and forgetting! When I hatched out my first batch of chickens lo those four years ago now, I had two little banties, a rooster and a hen. I still have the little red banty roo, but the hen was killed a few years ago by a raccoon. Which met its due demise as a result. A few weeks ago, Adam (my hired man) was working out here with his dad, Gary, one day and Gary took a hankering to one of my silver-laced Wyandotte hens. He asked if I would trade him one hen for three banties. I agreed and the next day he brought a banty roo (black and white) and two hens, one black and the other a tan/gold mix (pictured above). I think she is the prettiest. So now I have four little banties running around like tiny birds here on the farm. They’re cute as they can be. Not worth much for eggs because they lay such tiny eggs. But cute!
