It is not surprising that bantams are becoming increasingly popular. Exhibiting a great deal more character than their larger cousins, they soon become part of the family and provide both eggs and interest for very little expenditure. They appeal to both young and old alike and are relatively easy to accommodate and manage.

This one-stop guide covers:
*All aspects of housing with reference to open runs, penning sheds, light, ventilation and suitable
flooring.
*Feeding including basic rations for birds from one day to sixteen weeks, grit, water, greenstuffs and supplements.
*Breeding, rearing and hatching.  
*Showing and preparation, including egg competitions and the ringing scheme.
*Health, hygiene, ailments and diseases.
