The Bantam Flock

Our bantam flock is small on the homestead but they serve a very important purpose. Aside from the eggs they lay being eaten by the family we also use them as the hens we let set on our eggs to hatch them as they are all GREAT mothers. It’s true that The Baby-Red-Nose Flock has a few bantams in it as well but this flock is exclusively bantams. It consists of 1 roster named Conan and 3 hens. The white hen’s name is ‘Mama Dead Legs’ because she was the first one to ever hatch eggs on the Homestead and when she would get off the nest she would walk around like her legs were asleep for a minute.
