Last night the new barn was finally ready for a full flock. In went Ginger, Twinkydink, Marge, Buffy, The New Hen, Edwina and Snowball. These are the girls who will be photographed for a children’s book. Egger, Betsy Ross, Eleanor, Petunia and Perrie are in the coop with the HenCam. And, of course, Candy is still there, causing trouble. It will be a tad quieter on HenCam, but the girls like the extra space. This fall, we’ll add another HenCam to the new barn, but until then, I’ll just have to tell you about what’s going on in there.
There’s been a bit of a ruckus getting the new pecking order decided. It’s never pretty, what with pecked combs and pulled out feathers and squawking, but it happens quickly. By evening, Twinkydink and Buffy were fluffed up together on the roost as if they’ve been best friends their entire lives.
