Rosecomb Bantam

Rosecombs are a fancy, proud little breed of chicken. They're "true bantams" meaning there is no standard-size version of this chicken. They're not particularly hardy or easy to raise and are kept mainly for exhibition, so these beautiful birds aren't recommended for first-time poultry keepers who just want a friendly, egg-laying pet!
