Y'all probably remember the pen my husband made for our bantams. Well, since I was letting the rest of the chickens free range again, I decided to let the bantys join the big chickens. They are really loving being free. That's the bantam roo in the picture above. He's an araucana and so gorgeous. My son named him Hot Shot. Here he is below with his cochin hens. They are so cute with their fluffiness and their feathered feet.
We also let the mama hen and her babies out. I'm sad to say that several of the biddies died. One of them was killed by evil fire ants, and the guineas ran one into the dog and she ended up killing it. So, these are the two that are left. I think one may be an araucana mix and the other one a light brahama mix. They still stay very close to their mama even though they are around 3 months old now.
