Tess Comes Out of Her Shell

Tess has grown in confidence over the last week or so and has changed from a hen that was petrified of the girls around her (except her best friend Gertrude!) to one that is fairly comfortable with the rest of the flock! She’s still living in the coop with a smaller group of the newer hens, but now she’s spending less time on her own and will come out of the run when we open the door and have a peck at the ground and wander around for a while.

It’s great to see this and she now seems at ease with the dominant hens, as the picture shows (Tess has the two red bands on her legs), and now she can really start to enjoy herself.
