I am hoping my one remaining egg will hatch into a chick as gorgeous as yours. Dotty gave me hope and although 5 out of the 6 ebay eggs were no use I am still on edge for this last little one especially after they got cold yesterday. But there is a crack...and so I am really on edge hoping Minnie will have a chick to mother after all her hard work.

 :lol:  No Geo that is our lawn which is slowly getting demolished.  We have 2 broodies with 5 and 6 chicks so have to move their runs every couple of days.  We let them freerange in turns as the mums take chunks out of each other!   ::)  The main hen enclosure (6 hens) is pure mud now but will be converted to a vegetable patch when the walk in run is finished.  It should be well fertilised.    :blush:

You would have to endure the wrath of Dotty.   :ohmy:  Although she is not as feisty as Lotty, my hands have been pecked to bits when checking her chicks over.   ::)  She is such a good Mum.  I didn't have time to get them both used to being handled before they went broody so they are really defensive.  I will make sure that the chicks are more social as bantams are really fast and harder to catch than my normal sized hens.   :lol:

The wet weather has moved in this afternoon and looks as if it is set to drizzle all night.  :(
think of the size of veg you'll be getting  :blink:
nice looks chooks  :)
