My flock for most of the winter was just two bantam hens. I live in the woods so there is lots of cover in the underbrush for them during the summer. I had a standard Red Sexlink hen with them until the neighbor's dog got out and got my poor Stella in late July. After that the little girls wouldn't spend any time on open ground, and since the leaves fell off of the trees they rarely leave their run without me present as they no longer have good cover or a larger guardian. Every so often I'll find one of the girls hanging out in my dirt floor carport, but for the most part my little ladies just chill in the warm henhouse.
