About a month ago my friend Barb, from Victoria Hill Farm, gave me 2 bantam roosters. Now, I know you're thinking I'm crazy for taking them since I already have 4 grown roosters, and several more almost grown ones. But, they're bantams, and I didn't have any of those kinds of chickens. In case you don't know bantams are small, they don't get big like regular ones.
My son named the white rooster Elvis and my husband named the other rooster Will Smith. So, see, these are really their chickens, not mine. You believe me, right?
Anyway, my husband built the bantys that gorgeous pen at the top of the post. He did an awesome job! He's also building them a run so they can get down and scratch around on the ground. He split the pen in two, so each rooster has his own home.
Since we had 2 roosters, we had to go out and buy some hens for them. We didn't want them to be lonely. We ended up getting them some lovely cochin hens that are a couple months old.
Aren't they just the cutest?
