Chickens or bantams?
We normally keep about 4-5 hens which I used to buy from a local breeder of hybrid hens. We now need to buy new young stock in March/April and somebody has recommended bantams (instead of chickens) as being very friendly, docile and apparently they do not dig up flower beds or dig holes in the lawn as all our previous hens did with great vigour as we normally let them roam in the garden. I would welcome members' views and experiences of bantams, and which breed is friendly and of robust health?
