Once they are old enough I will work the Barred Rocks, Easter Eggers and a couple of the other full sized ones in with the big kids. We are creating a 2nd home for the Bantams, and Polish as well as the rest of the cresteds since they are ALL picked on mercilessly. I'll let them roam and play during the day and they can sleep in separate coops. What it will also likely do is allow me to split up roosters and hens, giving each about 12-14 ladies (what a life!)

Chessy, one of Valiants ladies and in the top 4-5 of the younger pecking order, feels a strong desire to sit ANYWHERE but where I'd like her too. At least she's point her pooper AWAY from the inside of the food.

    Curt– I am the State of MA President for the Air Force Association (AFA). We are recognizing the Top-5 Airmen in the state at an awards dinner in Charlestown, MA on 24 Oct. These are the best enlisted AF performers statewide. We respectfully ask you to be our honored guest and guest speaker on 24 Oct. This is a very special event and we think you are the perfect person to help us recognize these true heroes. Thanks for your consideration. v/r Joe jbisognano@msn.com Date: Wed, 1 Jul 2015 02:56:35 +0000 To: jbisognano@msn.com
