Cackle Hatchery® offers a variety of Bantam chickens for sale February through August of each year. Bantams are considered a miniature chicken and can be a third to a fifth the size compared to a standard chicken. Bantams are popular for pets, for showing, for being good broody mother hens and great for small backyards where space is limited. They come in many colors and with feather legged and clean legged types. Most of these bantam breeds are sold as not sexed but a few of these breeds are offered with options of pullets (female chicks).
