I have two wonderful hens who live in my home in a very large parrot cage. Chick is a Old English Bantam. Bittie is half Rhode Island red & half Leghorn. I purchased chick from the local flea market and she was very sick. I had my husband Give her antibiotics till she was well. She is now healthy and happy. When she became broody I put Bittie under her and she hatched her out. They are now a funny looking pair. Now Bittie is twice her size, but Chick still rules the coop. They forge for worms in my yard and garden through out the day and play and hang out with my dogs. I think they think they are dogs. All my dogs, cats, and a rabbit get along quite well together. I'm very blessed to have such wonderful pets.
