However, there could well be a boost to the number of bantams at our place in the next few days!
and 15 under these two. Yes two! In total, the number of eggs being incubated by these three are 25.
The two sisters have quietly co-existed for the last few weeks. Getting up at the same time to have a bit of a break - and then racing back to the nest.
Which leads me to wonder - what exactly is going to happen when (potentially) 15 chicks hatch?
What to do however with the two hens/15 chicken situation.
Looking for some help here -
PLAN A - separate roughly half the chickens and put them into separate cages with each mum
PLAN B - well I don't really think that would work, but Plan B was to let them work it out themselves. I can only see that ending badly.
PLAN C - I separate them but let them co-exist in a communal type arrangement.
Any thoughts or ideas welcomed. Preferably in the next couple of days! I probably should have separated them earlier, but they seemed pretty happy together.
Till next time at bantam central.
Strange but true Mel!
