Bantam Chickens: Spot, Blackie, and Penny

We have four bantam chickens that were sold as assorted bantams so we are not sure what breeds they are. The pictures above and immediately below is our bantie Spot. She’s always been very feisty, and it would not surprise me if she turned out to be a little rooster. She likes to jump up and chest bump the other chicks with her feet extended. She does seem to be calming down as she is getting older, though she’ll never be a push over.

Below is Spot and two of our other banties. Lola the full size mystery chicken is also in these photos. From left to right is Spot, Blackie, Lola, and Penny. I guess you could say they are all mystery chickens though Lola is the only full size chicken in these photos. If anyone would like to guess what breeds they are, I would appreciate it. Lola is the only clean legged chicken of this bunch.

In contrast to Spot’s feistiness, Penny and Blackie are very sweet and gentle banties. Lola is also very sweet. Not pictured here is our forth bantam, Scout. Scout is so small, she looks like a bird. I’ll try to get a picture of her for a later post.
