    Hi everyone, We usually let our hens in their coop before dark. On thanksgiving we were running late and didn't get home till after dark. We had two bantam barred rocks two bantam partridge Cochins and twin bantam Rhode island reds, all lost without a trace. We were all devastated, especially our 2 1/2 year old son. these were the tamest hens you'll ever meet and I think that is why I maybe shouldn't of let them out :-( . We live on the border of Prospect and Waterbury and are looking for any bantam hens for sale. Even if only a couple to keep the family happy until I can get some early next spring. please anything is appreciated and will gladly pay any reasonable amount. Thank you very much, Jay ,Chris ,& Ethan :) [​IMG][​IMG]
