About Japanese Bantam ChickensAbout Japanese Bantam Chickens

JapanesernBantams are show birds and pets. Technically a bantam is not a miniaturernversion of a standard bird. A true bantam, for example, the Japanese Bantam hasrnbut one size. rnrn 

rnrnThey are warm-weatherrnfowl, they function best in warm, clean confinement. They love to forage in thernlawn and do so without damaging the garden or yard. They help rid the soil ofrninsects and weed seeds. Although small, Japanese Bantams have all the characterrnand color of a standard size fowl. Japanese Bantams also has a voice equal to arnstandard chicken. The rooster can make a very loud and shrill noise. JapanesernBantams can live thirteen years and will give a family many years of fun filledrnenjoyment.rnrn 

rnrnJapanesernBantams have a calm, trusting, friendly personality. They will ride on arnshoulder, sit in a lap, and submit to petting. Although docile as individuals,rnthe roosters will fight if they find too many of them in the same flock. Thernhens gently brood and protect their chicks. Handled young, the Japanese Bantamrntames easily.rnrn 

rnrnJapanesernBantams has seventeen different accepted varieties. They all weighrnapproximately a pound with large upright tails that reach over their heads;rnlarge combs, wattles, and earlobes; long wings that touch the ground; and veryrnshort legs. Genetically Japanese Bantam chicks have a slim chance of meetingrnbreed standards. One fourth of them die in the egg. Another fourth have legsrntoo long for breed standards. Japanese Bantams have a broad build and with thernshort legs tend to waddle like ducks.rnrn 

rnrnKeep yourrnBantums clean. Only let them outside in warm, dry weather. Their short legsrnkeeps them close to the soil. Wet soil will end up mud in their feathers. CagedrnJapanese Bantam should have clean bedding at all times especially for showrnbirds. Make sure the coop remains warm, dry, and well ventilated. Feed yourrnBantum food sized to their stature. Food too large for the Japanese Bantam endsrnup on the ground where it spoils, stinks, and attracts vermin. Remember thatrnJapanese Bantum like all other chickens need a place to roost. The roostrnprotects the Japanese Bantam from dirt, mites, lice, and bent feathers.
