Two New Bantam "Broody" Hens
I brought home from Chickenstock two new bantam hens,
who are known to go broody. The one is a pure Mille Fluer bantam Cochin,
and the black one is a Silkie/Sizzle Cochin cross. They came from two different BYC'ers, but they've been in quarantine together.
They seem to be healthy and adjusting great, so the other day I moved
them to one of the grass paddocks, where they're still separate
but can start to transition to being with the rest of the flock.
Of course, they used the hole the other chickens had dug to dust bathe,
even though this grass paddock isn't supposed to have any holes!
