I managed to hatch a few offspring from this project but unfortunately didn't manage to solve the fertility problems. Here are a few pics

I think the light brown one is a cockerel and the smaller dark brown one a pullet however we will see. If I ever try this again I'll try and get a full size Indian game rooster to cross with them.

I really like the bantams though and have recently bought 4 nice little pullets to put with my rooster Image

They are gorgeous lucky you. My broody passed before the eggs hatched so I threw them out. I'm new to all this. I bought fertilised eggs I don't have a rooster, not allowed in the suburbs. I wouldn't mind one of those chicks they are beautiful.

Thank you Tillycans. Sorry to hear about your broody. That's bad luck. I just had 6 chicks hatch from a broody yesterday so am really pleased. They are the first pure Bantam IG I have hatched. I'll try and put some pics up tomorrow if I get a chance.

One of the things I love about my Bantam IG rooster is his crow is really quiet. I don't know if it's to do with the breed or just him however it sounds like he has lost his voice so his crow isn't very loud
