eFowl offers many of the most popular breeds of Bantam Chickens. Bantam Chickens are basically miniature versions of standard chicken breeds, but many breeds of Bantams are unique to themselves and have no parent standard breed.
The name Bantam comes from the name of an Asian seaport in the city of Bantam, Indonesia, a port where the first of these small Asian chicken breeds were first found and transported to other regions of the world. Eventually, all miniature fowl species, especially chickens, were referred to as Bantam Breeds. The eggs layed by Bantam Hens are about one third the size of standard chicken eggs, but many still use the eggs for culinary purposes.
Many fowl owners use Bantam Hens for the purposes of sitting and hatching eggs of other species of chickens as well as duck and goose eggs. Bantams will raise young fowl of other species with a high success rate due to their broody nature. These miniature fowl can be comedic and useful additions to your fowl family as well as making a gorgeous exhibition bird.
These chicks are safely and comfortably shipped hours after they hatch. You will receive your baby chicks when they are about 34-48 hours old.
