The basics:
he Belgium bantam is a very old breed from the Netherlands. It was found on farms in Western Europe for many years. This breed is the foundational parent of the popular Dutch bantam. Since the creation of the Dutch bantam, the Belgium bantams popularity has waned to the point of border extinction.

Please NOTE: The Belgium bantam is NOT related to the Belgium d’Anver, d’Unccle, or Watermael. The Waasse bantam is the same breed as the Belgium bantam, only it has a rosecomb.
