          Pennelton resides in Sophie’s Place hen house with hens Melon and Sweetpea.  At age 8 1/2, Pennelton remains healthy and the rooster-in-charge among our three backyard roosters.                  He lived in the barn on two occasions:  once until he could find a clan of his own and a second time when he was roughed up by his coming-of-age rooster chicks.
              In younger years, he roamed the yard each day with his sister, Tootsie, but because of hawk attacks, all bantams are confined to their chicken runs where they are protected by wired enclosures.  
After all…….
……a chicken’s gotta do what a chicken’s gotta do and sometimes to stay safe, you need to stay at home, too.
