    I have 2 banty mixes I know the are half Belgiun d uncle and Millie flur (sp????) I think their hens but not sure and they will not stay in the coop if we net them in they sleep outside on the coop door and if their not netted in they sleep way up in a tree which is fine for now but what do I do in winter???? I live them they are so cute and I don't want anything to happen to them. I don't really know much about this breed any info would be great[​IMG]

    They look like pullets.

    Just so you know, Mille Fleur is a colour, not a breed. [​IMG]

    As for keeping them safe in winter, you really do need to build a predator proof coop for them.

    lol like I said I know nothing about banty's[​IMG] I have a coop for them and they prefer to sleep in the tree[​IMG] they have there own coop so I don't know what to do they will freeze in the winter even when there in their fenced in yard with the coop they sleep outside. They go in the coop during the day so I know its not the fact that they wont go in at all maybe they will when it gets cold enough[​IMG]
