    Look at what my three sneaky Pete bantams surprised me with this morning!

    These three have fostered several batches for us this year, but we have never let them hatch any bantam chicks.

    Luckily DH just finished a new run for them, complete with small chicken wire around the bottom. He didn't feel that they had enough sunshine. (Never let it be said that our chickens are crowded! This new pen for the three Bantams is aproximately 200 sq feet! I guess that just means there will be plenty of room for 4!)

    His only saving grace is that he has no spurs, only feathers on his legs. No matter how often we do the football treatment on him, he will always flog the snot out of your ankles if you stress his girls! (I also tend to wear jeans, no shorts! My mama didn't raise no dummy!)

    Oh, and for reference, those are 2" squares on the panels behind them!
