Well it’s not been an easy week. Lily and Lottie are still not pleased to have new little ‘sisters’, and Lottie has got a chest infection with the stress of it all. She’s always been a highly strung bird.I’ve spent all week juggling hens in different spaces, trying to get them a bit closer all the time, whilst still protecting the little ones. Lottie’s a lot better than she was, but is still wheezy, and on antibiotics following a trip to the vet. This will also mean we won’t be able to eat her eggs for a while. I’m really looking forward to letting the little ones free-range for the first time. It’s a bit scary though because they’ be very hard to catch if they decided not to return to the run of their own accord! They’ll love being out and about: they’re so curious!
