Seramas These are the smallest bantam in the world.  The plumage can be any colour, smooth or silky and lay around 100 very small eggs per year.  These again are extremely easily handled and could be kept indoors, needing some additional warmth in the coldest of winter months. A rabbit hutch is ideal to keep these birds.  These are bred from Show Winning Stock.
Chamoise Friesian (Rare) These are a rare and ancient breed from Friesland in the Netherlands, introduced into the UK in the 1990's.   They are a small sized active breed, available in large and bantam - the large is the same size as a buff rock bantam. For their size they lay relatively large white eggs of around 250 per year.  They are very hardy, friendly, characterful, very inquisitive birds and prefer to be free ranged. These are bred from Show Winning Stock.
Booted Bantams - Lemon or Gold Millifleur, Blue, Black, Silver or Gold Birchen Originally from Holland (Sabelpoots) the Booted bantam is small, similar to a Pekin and very docile.  Ideal around the garden as due to the foot feathering they dont scratch around quite as much as other breeds. They lay around 150 white or tinted eggs per year.  Jane has won many trophies with this breed and is treasurer of the Booted Bantam Society.   These are bred from Show Winning Stock.
Bantam breeds Plymouth Rock Bantam - Buff or Barred First developed in Massachusetts USA in the 1820s,  they are very friendly, happy to be handled and is well known for their placid, docile friendly temperament. This breed is easily tamed and make ideal pets and can lay up to 180 very useful sized tinted eggs per year.  We breed both the Buff and Barred colours.  These are bred from Show Winning Stock
Cream Legbar Originating from the Leghorn, Arucana & Barred Plymouth Rock. Developed as an egg laying breed, it was developed in the UK in the 1920s with the aim of auto- sexing the chicks when hatched. They are a medium sized bird (same size as a hybrid), slightly smaller than the Speckled Sussex.  They lay around 200 blue eggs per year.  These are NOT to be confused with Hybrid legbars, some of which may look similar, but would not breed true and cannot be shown.   These are bred from Show quality stock.
 Large Breeds Speckled Sussex (heritage) A dual purpose UK breed from the 18th Century, the less common large speckled Sussex, is a very attractive mahogany red bird with black and white speckled feathers. These birds are an ideal bird for any environment, very docile, robust, chatty heavy birds being easy to keep and are perfect all round birds for gardens and children.  They lay around 180 tinted eggs per year.  These are bred from Show Winning Stock.
Bantam Silkies - white, black, cuckoo (rare) or gold partridge Laying on and off all year around they will lay around 100 tinted eggs per year.  They are renowed for “sitting”, ie going broody, which they will do all year around, often in the late spring when most other hens are in full lay.   With the exception of the cuckoo feathered ones, they should have black skin and 5 toes, unlike other breeds with red/pink skin and 4 toes.  Ideal as pets, hardy with restricted sight due to their fluffy heads.  Please note it is not possible to sex the white silkies until around 15 weeks, the other colours are available as young as 6 weeks sexed.  
Welbar Bantam - Gold or Silver (Rare) Extremely friendly and easily handled, these are an autosexing Welsummer developed in the 1940s (you can sex the chicks at day old).   Like the welsummer, they lay dark brown eggs and are excellent layers, laying around 250 eggs per year.  These are the best bantam in our opinion as they lay almost as many eggs as the hybrid layers. These are bred from Show Winning Stock
Buff Orpington These are a very large breed developed in the UK in the late 1880s.  The breed has very little obvious body shape due to the profusion of feathers, which is their main attraction. They lay around 160 tinted eggs per year.  They are very docile and placid and easily bullied by other more active breeds.   These are bred from Show Winning stock.
Wybar Bantam - Silver Laced (Very Rare) Created we believe from a Silver Laced Wynadotte, a barred plymouth rock and Brussbar in the 1950s as a triple purpose bird, ie egg laying, meat and show, they were not available in great numbers and it seems pretty much died out completely.  Recreated possibly in the 1970s as a bantam these have only been available in very small numbers, eg <10 in the UK, until the last few years when a few dedicated breeders like ourselves set out to rescue them and promote their breeding.  These are basically an autosexing Silver Laced Wynadotte (you can sex the chicks at day old).  They can produce up to 150 tinted eggs per year, they are similar in size to the Buff Rock bantam and of similar easy going temperament.  Compared with a Silver Laced Wynadotte, the Wybar has a barred tail, belly and thighs and has slighly lighter black lacing.  Bred from Show stock.
