Bantan_Diagram

According to Wikipedia, a bantam is a small variety of poultry, especially chickens. Most large chicken breeds have a bantam counterpart, sometimes referred to as a miniature. Miniatures are usually one-fifth to one-quarter the size of the standard breed, but they are expected to exhibit all of the standard breed’s characteristics. A true bantam has no large counterpart, and is naturally small. Such birds are often popular for show purposes.

How to boil farm fresh eggs

With eggs that are just a day or two old, the outer membrane beneath the shell sticks tightly to the shell making peeling the egg almost impossible.
