I got them from my neighbor... I traded them for a bantam breeding coop, that he is using for his broodies, and their chicks when they hatch!

Re: Japanese Bantams! ~ Add yours and any information you have!

Hey I was just checking around for chicken forums and saw this post.  I have 2 dozen black tailed white and buff jap eggs on their way.  My first chickens.  It seems not many people can give me specific info on them and most websites only have a little history.  How cold does it get there and how do you and/or your neighbor house them in winter?  I was told they can't go below 20F or the roos might get frostbite.  That would require a heated building here since it can get to -20F in the middle of winter.  Do you know how they do free ranging?


I have nothing to hatch!

Randi, very pretty!

Akane, I dont know much about the Japanese bantams, but welcome to CC.  PFB may not be around much to answer your question on them, she had a horrid storm come thru and they are still getting the downed trees off house and stuff.  sad

Akane~

I do not know much about them really. I just got them the start of June. Ours are in a tractor, because of predators so they get fresh grass each day, but I have to move their tractor daily. They seem to be happy with that. They are very mild tempered. My kids go in there and pick them up and hold them and carry them all over the yard. I am in Kentucky, so it doesn't get very cold here, we will be adding a modification to their tractor for the winter months, we actually have to worry more about the heat here.

That is about all I know right now about them, as I am new to this breed. Sorry I couldn't be of more help. I will see what I can find for information for you in regards to cold weather. It may take me a bit, like Jill said, I am doing some major clean up here from after a storm, and I am working 12 hour shifts.



Jill~

Thanks! Thanks for the heads up too!

Re: Japanese Bantams! ~ Add yours and any information you have!

I know how that is.  I'm sitting in the new lake Iowa.  lol  First day I've been able to go to town for groceries and I couldn't get to the petstore for cat food because of the highway 6 river.  It's 10' deep water running down the highway like someone carved out the road to let the water down.  Luckily my eggs are coming from the south so hopefully they shouldn't get too delayed and temps are suppose to be good.

Re: Japanese Bantams! ~ Add yours and any information you have!

Akane,

So many people have gotten hammered with these storms.  I am in Nebraska and we have been getting a lot of rain, but not quite as much as you guys.  We have 9 towns here that are just dumping their waste tho, and conserving water as there is not enuff fresh water to go around.   
And the tree cleanup is unreal.  Soon as you get one cleaned up from one storm, here comes another.  I sure sympathize, Randi, you have your work cut out for you, am thinking of you.  We have been SO lucky not to have tree branches down, as with dh gone, I just cant imagine doing it ourselves. 

There is just no where for it to go.  We live in the city that has 2 underpassed that flood bad when there is heavy rain, and Wednesday nite it happened again that 4 cars had to be towed and several people rescued.  They are just dumb.  Also all the new/used car lots are on the side of town that flooded and we have been lookin for a vehicle.  Now its scary, becuz you dont know whats had water up to the steering wheel and what hasnt.
