Rachel’s color project with her bantams has gone pretty well. She has gotten some interesting birds however some of them refuse to stay in their pens.  Specifically the silky bantams prefer to be in the pen with Richard, the white frizzle, and the partridge cochins.

Richard, on the other hand, does not like sharing his pen.

We tried for several nights in a row closing the silkies in their coop at night but the next day they fly right back over into Richard’s pen.  We finally gave up.

So did Richard – he moved into the silky pen.He seems quite happy all by himself.  I can’t say that I blame him.  Sometimes solitude is a good thing.
