All 10 chanties are still going strong and getting big!
I got 6 bantam ameraucanas to join them- something fun, a little color, and maybe some blue/blue green bantam sized eggs. They’re about a week younger. I lost one bantam the day after I got them- fine one minute, and dead half an hour later. I lost a second one 2 days ago- not sure why. I can only think maybe it got trampled? John turned on the table saw to use in the basement and scared them. Other than that, it, too, was healthy, then very sick/dead within hours. I also had one bantam that got “pasty butt” that I had to clear off several times, but it’s still going strong. Here’s hoping the rest stay healthy and alive! John just wants one of them to look like the corn flakes rooster.
We’ve been making progress on getting a coop built. Here’s what it looked like last week
And here’s what it looks like now
We’re planning to work on it some more this evening!
