The last few days both groups of hens have free ranging together in the afternoon and evening, and have made their way to their respective coops to sleep. Whilst some of the new hens have explored the coop and run, they’ve always found their way (or been carried!) to their coop – until tonight! Miss Buttercup decided it was time to go into the high coop and perch with the big girls! There was a small squabble – Willow was involved no doubt – but things were quiet when I left them all.
Downstairs, the 9 are still practising for rugby scrums, but are a lot more settled and don’t mind me getting close for the nightly headcount, which is becoming easier!
