No they are smaller and lighter than Pekin Bantams the adult males are up to 600 grammes as opposed to 680-790 grammes for a Pekin male, ideally the lighter and smaller the better in top condition and to type...

We had a pair of Buff Sussex that were absolute bitches and wouldnt let up on any newbies even when we had so many chooks that it was hard to spot the Newbies.Persevere you will win in the end. :wink: It doesnt matter what method you try so long as it works.There is no absolute right way with livest...

Maybe some people will have different experiences but all our chickens hated the quail and the quail were scared of the other birds.They were bantams too as the Large Fowl were no where near the quail.Bantams are a bit more feisty than large fowl but personally I wouldnt recommend mixing them.The qu...
