Booted Bantam Society UK Committee
I only wanted three layers and small ark – now we must have nearer 150 of all shapes and sizes (birds not arks!). We breed Booted Bantams (obviously), in a range of colours (both standard and rumpless). I also love breeding and showing Ayam Cemani, large Sulmtalers and large and bantam White Crested Black Polands. We’ve also won Best in Show with the bantam WCB Polands which is a great achievement.
We also keep a range of home grown ‘mongrel’ layers as well which supply a good range of egg colours for showing. I caught the showing bug early on and now love going to shows both large and small. Sometimes we win, sometimes we don’t but it’s always a good place to learn.
I hope the Booted club will attract more breeders to help select and refine stock to get it as close to the breed standard as possible.
