“Sweetpea”

          Bantam Sweetpea came to live with us in September 2015 to keep bantam rooster Pennelton company in House of Bantam henhouse.  She and Pennelton now live in Son of Barn henhouse with the egg-laying hens.

          A beige Brahma-type hen, she once laid small eggs but will not have anything to do with that task at this point in life.   She learned to be assertive as she aged and does not always look to Pennelton for protection in their new Son of Barn home.

         After all…..
…..a chicken’s gotta do what a chicken’s gotta do and though other coopmates appear larger, a tiny hen with feathered feet can claim treats, too!
