Then I went to feed the cocks, and found that one of them was out too. I gave him some corn, then fed the other two – there was a loose bit of wire and a big enough hole for a small bantam to get through. So I covered it and then went and picked up the hen and put her through the door and then fetched the cock and put him in too. They’re very tame, dear little birds. I haven’t taken any pictures yet, I’ll do that soon and show you.
I was quite surprised when I saw them in fact, they’re black and white and very small. James has hand-reared them and they are quite tame. Apparently they’re pedigree bantams. That’ll raise the tone around here, then.
