Default frizzle bantams????

We recently acquired four bantam frizzles. We were told they were hens by the people raising them. They are very tame and the cutest little things, I am trying to get some pictures, but it's like trying to hit a moving target. They can really move fast when they are startled or frightened.
They are in a pen right next to the big chickens and they don't pay much attention to each other unless they are all together.
I've wanted a couple of silkies for a long time. I just had to wait untill it was his idea......They will be next......These are the cutest birds I enjoy just watching them! Any eggs will be a bonus!

Can't wait to see chickens! I am a city girl, but still love the chickens. We have a neighborhood here where they have the run of the town center and I love to go to the park and watch them.

Yes, we want pictures! Two of my friends raise chickens for eggs but I don't know what kind. I enjoy watching them. We live in town and can't have them.

I am surprised that you say they are good natured. Any bantams that I have encountered have been territorial and cranky little things. They are cute a lay a perfectly formed , miniature egg. Silkies I have found to be lovely. Good luck with your venture.

Oh! Yes, pics please! I love chickens and always have, raised on a farm so I have some knowledge of what it takes to keep 'em. As a kiddo I always loved to watch them and their feathers are beautiful. Always wanted to make a chicken quilt for myself but haven't done it yet! Some day soon I hope-bucket list you know!

Can't wait to see a picture too. All I have seen are normal chickens that were on my Great Aunt's farm in Kansas.
