Thank you for the warm welcome everyone. I am dealing with my empty nest at home by having some bantams in the garden. I have 3 mottled (1 cockeral and 2 hens) and a 'little brown hen'. Brown hen is now broody and sitting, very comfortably, on 10 eggs. So I am looking forward to using all your advice and maybe finding new homes for the new comers. Happy clucking!
