Meet Violet, aka ‘Violent’, ‘The Poo Poo’, ‘Meanie’, and ‘Bossy Butt’. She’s a Dutch partridge bantam and the smallest girl in our flock. She’s also the fiercest little bird you’ll ever meet. Next to June, Violet is commander in chief. She keeps the other hens and bantams in line by chasing, biting, and pulling their feathers. Even birds five times her size won’t challenge her authority. Not bad for a fourteen ounce bantam.

  1. She’s adorable! And bantams typically don’t take shit from anyone. They’re tough little birds.

      She’s cute, but she’s a horror. She’s tried to run away from home twice.
