A bad day for hens


It’s been a bad day for Lily (Silver Nick = white hen) and Lottie (Bluebelle = grey hen).

On impulse yesterday we got two new chickens from Freightliners Farm. They’re both 14 weeks old, one’s a cuckoo maran (speckled greys), and the other’s a mongrel (ginger etc).

We’ve kept the two factions separated for most of the day, but both are definitely quite disturbed by the other. Lottie, who’s by far the biggest – and top of the pecking order – actually seems quite scared of the little peepy (and very sweet) chickens!
