Good on you. I would love another run but don't know whether to buy one or attempt to make one. I really should wait to see if I move house or not. How easy/hard did you find it to do?

Fee,

Japanese bantams...japs for short. They are a true bantam ie no standard equivalent and are the smallest bantam generally available in this country.

PJH can tell u a lot more.

japs are the short name for japanese bantam, they are one of the smallest breeds in australia--weighing in at around 500 grams fully grown, quaint little birds, true bantams with huge tails, combs and very, very short legs----they are my breed of choice

link for you

there are also some pics in the gallery, cheers pam

Chookaloo,

They are good fliers. I have some perches about 5 foot off the ground, they regularly get up there and even on to the coop roof.

They are small but have good wing power.

I had a look at that site too, so those are japs? Now I understand the 'japs are real birds too' note. They are gorgeous. Funny how talking poultry can lead you in all directions.
