Went to a chicken show today and came home with a trio of black bantam cochins. The hens and the roosters have different mothers and are about 3 1/2 months old. I usually only go for standards but the price was right. She had the hens separate from the rooster priced for sale. Well I bought the hens with no intentions of the rooster. By the time I left no one had bought him so guess what? They are sooooo cute. We named them Black Beauty (rooster) Merrylegs and Ginger. I have them in their own pen and they are happily scratching away. Now, tonight I have a group of chickens that always sleep in that coop in that pen. They are going to be beside themselves when they have to go to the pen and coops next door. Such creatures of habit and they hate change! Ok,,,running back outside to check on the new little group!
