Bantam Chickens are a small variety of poultry originating from Indonesia. European sailors came across these small native chickens and found them to be very useful for sea journeys due to their compact size and calm, friendly personality. It is this same friendly personality, which has resulted in Bantams becoming increasingly popular as pets, which are ideally suited to smaller gardens and backyards. They are extremely friendly and perfectly happy to be handled – with care and respect of course! They are also perfectly suited to the showing world due to their more varied and exotic colours and feather patterns.
Bantam Eggs are delicious!, which, while only about half to two-thirds the size of a regular hen egg offer extremely rich yolks. Perfect for baking and they make the most wonderful omlettes, deliciously rich scrambled eggs and the perfect dieters dippy eggs are ready in exactly one minute from boiling!
