Get ready for a feathered frenzy with Valley Hatchery’s Barred Old English Bantam Chicks, a breed that’s as lively in spirit as it is striking in appearance! These little dynamos, descendants of the ancient cockfighting birds of Roman Britain, are not just survivors of history; they’re modern-day showstoppers.

The Barred Old English Bantam, although not recognized by the American Poultry Association, is a standout in its own right. These bantams flaunt an eye-catching black and white barred feathering, resembling a feathery checkerboard that’s bound to catch every eye. It’s this unique spotted coloring that makes them a favorite among poultry enthusiasts.

But their appeal isn’t just skin (or feather) deep. These chickens are the epitome of ‘small but mighty’. Weighing in at a compact 22 ounces for hens and 24 ounces for roosters, they’re the perfect fit for any backyard or small farm setup. And don’t let their size fool you; these bantams lay approximately 100 small brown eggs annually, proving that great things indeed come in small packages.

Valley Hatchery’s Barred Old English Bantams aren’t just about good looks and productivity. They’re also incredibly low-maintenance and well-behaved, making them the perfect pet for any chicken enthusiast, whether you’re a seasoned pro or just starting. They require minimal space and feed, allowing even urban chicken keepers to enjoy their vibrant presence.

In the world of poultry shows, these bantams have their unique charm. The males, ready to strut their stuff, must be dubbed (comb and wattles removed) for that sleek show look. But whether they’re in the show ring or your backyard, these chickens are always ready to impress.

So, if you’re looking for a chicken breed that combines history, beauty, and practicality, look no further than Valley Hatchery’s Barred Old English Bantam Chicks. Bring home these black and white beauties and let the pecking party begin!
