Nankin Bantams at Colonial Williamsburg

Nankin Bantams, miniature fowl, are part of the poultry population at Colonial Williamsburg.

“The chickens seen in the poultry houses and runs around the Historic Area represent breeds that could have been in Williamsburg during the eighteenth century. While general-purpose chickens were the mainstay of the poultry stock, ornamental and bantam fowl were becoming increasingly popular as the colonists copied prevailing trends in England.” - Laura Arnold, a Historical Interpreter in the Department of Historic Interpretation, The Colonial Williamsburg Foundation.

The pictured rooster and hen may be seen at the rear of the Powell House.

Good Sunday morning. We have a beautiful day in Maryland. Have a great week and enjoy the holidays as you prepare for an outstanding new year.

This is a good time of the year to visit Colonial Williamsburg.  Dolores and I like to see all of the decorations that are made with natural materials.
