Bantam

Bantam hatching eggs

Bantams get their name from the Indonesian city of  Bantam which was once a major seaport. Sailors buying chickens for long sea voyages took a particular liking to the smaller chickens from Southeast Asia, and these and other smaller chickens began to be called Bantams.

Bantams are popular because they don’t require as much space as larger breeds. Many people keep Bantams as laying hens but their eggs are approximately 1/3 to 1/2 the size of larger breeds.

Bantam roosters are famous for their spunk and fearlessness. Many people refer to Bantams as “Bantys”.

Bantams come in a number of varieties. Old English Bantams became popular in America after becoming a standard breed in 1925. The male”s long flowing hackle is commonly referred to by breeders as the shawl.

Male Japanese Bantams have larger heads, tails, combs, and wings than other Bantams. Their tail resembles a sword. Silkie Bantams are known for their nearly black face, skin, comb, wattles and their hair- like plumage which has no web.
