I think you can get a Welsummer banty too.

John has a bit about bantams on the site

My little silkies are gorgeous, lay well and excellent broodies! They're beautiful to look at and all fluffy and cuddly too!

I can recommend light sussex bantams - they are smart, hardy, and lay well.  Although my three have only produced one egg between them since I got them in September  :roll: , but thats through no fault of their own (too young and mum duties).

There are two sorts of bantams.

There are bantams that are the smaller version of existing large breeds and then there are whats known as true bantams. These are breeds that have never had a larger counterpart.
I hope future keepers of bantams find this snippit of interest.
