Banties vs standard chickens
I only have a few standard chickens left now. Since I don't want an abundance of eggs (Please, no selling extras!) I thought some fancy banties might be the answer come spring. But I have a few questions.
My chickens free roam during the day through the barnyard and fields. I've never had a problem with the larger chickens coming in the fenced house yard with the dogs. With the banties being smaller they MIGHT be able to squeeze thru the fence, but would they have sense enough not to with the dogs in the yard.
Also, I've heard tales of mean banty roosters. But from a quick glance at this forum, it sounds like there are at least some sweet ones out there.
Any advice on a Banty purchase come spring would be greatly appreciated.
