Rhode Island Red Bantams.

We do the miniature fowl, which are are classed as heavy soft feather bantam for showing purposes, a good specimen is often described as being brick shape.

They are a popular easy going useful and independant bird with a shiny rich chocolate red feathering, they are excellent layers of pale brown eggs. These birds have really grown on us they are becoming more friendly and are reliable egg layers. We have also noticed they are a breed that doesn't go broody at the drop of a hat.
