I make stuff, garden lots, obsessively watch cycling, am a newly formed dog addict & have a thing for hens. For fun I have Ehlers Danlos Syndrome (I'm bendy).

Interesting, quite a few people saying their bantams aren’t keen on perching. I am going to install a smaller perch & then they have a choice, in the end they’ll do what they like!

Thanks Claire, that’s interesting. Someone else has said their bantams like the Eglu. I might move the spare eglu perches I have into the main house & see if they choose them.

Thanks, mine seem fine with the bigger hens, in fact one of the feisty bantams is pretty much in charge really. Just the perches are an issue.

That’s interesting as I have an old Omlet to use for extra space & they have smaller perches. The small hens naturally chose smaller branches to perch on during the day. The D’Uccle look spectacular.

I was given 4 Rhodes Island bantams by a friend as I decided to replace large with small as time went on. I am getting a couple of Sussex in the spring and then looking at what else to have. The Dutch bantams look great.

Thanks, what size perches do you use? Mine seem not to be happy on the whole about the 2x2 perches, do use this size for your bantams? Had larger hens all my life but now changing over to bantams.

I have heard bantam cockerels are quite feisty. I am 4’10” so get the need to project yourself a bit when you’re small!

Does anyone keep bantams or knows someone that does? Looking for a little bit of advice. Cheers.
