Bantams…

They are the most amusing creatures…diminutive and wily, these little gals have offered endless entertainment in the chicken yard.

We’ve truly enjoyed the past couple years raising chickens. Our Golden Comets and Barred Rocks have provided us with an inexhaustible supply of farm fresh eggs and the invaluable lessons that come with caring for livestock. But these bantams…we’re raising them for their charm…and they are enchanting little comediennes…

Check out our Silkie…have you ever seen a more hysterically funny looking bird? It’s an ostrich wannabe…and will be real fuzz ball when it’s finished growing.

And this saucy lady…this Golden Sebright does nothing but parade and complain! But she still has a bit of growing up to do…her friend, the Silver Sebright is a bit more retiring.

After spending the majority of our nearly thirty years of marriage and family life in the suburbs, I praise God for the last four years exploring the joys of country living…

Blessings,
