Healthly and Friendly Review by Nicole
We got 5 females. 4 are female 1 was a male, which is not uncommon for sexed bantams. The 4 females are very friendly. All were healthy when they arrived and have grown up to be healthy. I was not sure what to expect as a breed or size, but these little ladies are bantam sized and will be a breed I keep! (Posted on 11/7/2019)
love rhode island red bantams Review by Karla
I purchased this breed for the first time spring 2019. I wanted a flock but don't really need the production a full size breed gives considering its just me and my husband. And surprisingly, the bantam yoke is the same size as a standard chicken's small egg! Therefore, I feel that the Rhode Island Bantam is a more efficient bird. (Posted on 11/6/2019)
