I figure its about time for an update on the Bantam hen and her brood, the ones that I am currently raising in a dog crate in my office, and what better way to do that than with some photos!

These first two pictures were taken back on the 2nd ….

These two were taken just this evening ….

They all seem to be doing well. They certainly make enough noise! She is now having quite a bit of trouble getting them all tucked away under her wings. We are pretty sure that the little guy who is yellow and black is a guy, as he has quite a comb developing, which you can make out in picture 4. We also think one of the black ones is a boy, and are just hoping that we get lucky and the rest are girls.

We have also been getting a regular supply of eggs from our Chantecler and Bovan Nera chickens out in the barn. Most days we get 1 or 2, this evening was a real score – 5 eggs! And oh but Steve does make a fine omelet!

  1. I agree with you 100% – things happen for a reason. I found this by accident and noticed that we have some things in common. Thats what I love about the Internet, every blog is like a box of chocolates :) Thanks – Great blog.
