Anecdotes / Chickens

Silly Little Girls

The two girls I bought at the poultry fair in August have settled in fairly well.  About two months after they came home, they moved in with the rest of the flock in the big coops.  Still, being the new girls, they mostly ranged together as a pair, avoiding the rest of the flock.  These days, they are still settling in.  They mix with the rest of the flock most of the time but will not go far from the coop.  When the rest of the flock comes down towards the house, the two new girls stay up by the coop and hang back.

It used to be that they would not go into their little coop at night but would perch on the fence between the runs.  These days, they are still carrying on with their own brand of nonsense.  Instead of roosting for the night on the actual roost with every body, they settle in on the side of the nest box – um, the nest box in which Olive is trying to brood her egg.

It’s actually quite funny (maybe not for Olive.) 🙂 So, each night, we go up to the coop, count heads, and move the silly little girls to the roost.  Chickens are funny little things, and I enjoy them very much!
