Verified Reviews for Nankin
Wonderful Breed! - Darcy,
Nankins are a wonderful breed, especially for the backyard chicken farmer. They are very friendly, compact, happy to be in the coop, happy to perch on your hand, and produce very small but sturdy eggs. We have had our Nankin hen sit on eggs very successfully. They are often broody, but that can be good if you need a broody hen. Very fun breed, did well during our WI winter in our enclosed, insulated, heated with heat lamps hen house.
My favourite chicken breed. - Ann,
My Nankins have been a total joy. The are very friendly and interactive. Excellent layers and superb broodies. They do stay close to the coop and are wonderful mothers, shepherding their chicks around the garden with great intelligence. The roosters are much more independent and flighty. If I could only have one breed of chicken, it would be the Nankin.
Nankins - rare breed - lovely bantam - An Omleteer,
These are very rewarding bantams to have and are very pretty. Sweet natured, tame and easy to look after. Highly recommend.
Just Brilliant Birds - An Omleteer,
Nankins are probably the best breed of chicken for friendliness and just being small lovely bantams. They are great birds and don't do damage to your garden or try a Great Escape re-enactment! If you want a small friendly bird that will lay and sit eggs and are lovely to look at Nankins are your birds!
WOW.......................... - An Omleteer,
I've got a pair of gold nankins an they are so friendly. after about a minute of sitting on your hand they fall asleep. They onlylay a few eggs but what do you expect from a small bird? They look beautiful and are the most friendlyist breed i'e kept. Only problem is they are so friendly that the other bigger breeds we have sometimes beat them up because they arn't too fond of running around with the others near them.
