In the Big House

Hi there keepers, as some of you may know we have 3 new chicks, one of which only just arrived three days ago, as we had to swap Maria the rooster, for Manuella the Minorca hen, which has caused more pecking and general trouble at mill, so in an attempt to force them all to get on, I decided to put them all in the same coop for the night, as they don’t tend to fight in the coop, probably because it’s dark and they wouldn’t be too sure who they were pecking, and heaven forbid they should peck Nancy(boss) by mistake.

Well they went to bed in a peaceful state, and all was well, but in the morning a different story, once they could see who was who they were off, i arrived down in the morning to hear much fuss coming from inside the coop, only Nancy had escaped the coop, she seems to be the only one who can push the door open. I think it helped though, as they seemed to be slightly more friendly towards each other.

We put them in together again last night, and there was less fuss in the coop this morning, so hopefully by tommorrow or the end of the week, they’ll be all be firm friends ( except Nancy).
