Erm yes, they will be Duracell, Eveready and Charles Chickens (Charlie for short) :oops: :hohoho: :hohoho:

We already have 2 others (posh hens) which we got on Monday, they are called Chucky McCluck and Marjorie. I hasten to add that I chose the name Marjorie and have had nothing whatsoever to do with naming the others :giggle: :giggle:

Well they're here and they are really well feathered and surprisingly plump. They're also really friendly, well to humans at least but sadly not to our other 2 lovely bantams whilst the pecking order of the flock is established :-? . We were told that young bantams would pose no threat to the ex-batts so there shouldn't be any fights but that doesn't seem to be the case.

They are also great escape artists as two of them have managed to escape the run and free range in my garden :giggle: :giggle:

Pics of the banties:

I've not managed to get pics of the ex-batts yet but will try and get some tomorrow :D
