On the back of an exciting weekend, this morning I took the last 5 Hatchapalooza participants who were in the market for a new home to their new owner. Coupled with the completion of the Bantytown Suburb, which the 5 baby bantam Ameraucanas and 5 youngest silkies are now occupying, that means the house is now occupied by only two chickens.
Number One and Number Three have stayed with us. Number One will be with us forever, and if he turns out to be a rooster then Mel will be given a pen with some silkie hens in it to lord over and Number One will stay in with the hens. Number Three, if a roo, will have to be rehomed, but we selected Number Three for his hennish qualities. still, at this age, it’s a crapshoot.
