The new chooks are settling well. Dave put them all together to see what would happen. Initially the rooster wouldn't venture out into the big wide world, but encouraged by Venus he soon got brave. The first day was spent finding their feet, but by yesterday Sevi decided it was time to put my girls in their place and gave them the runaround. I'm not sure Cagney is too happy, she has been well and truly told she has been demoted from boss to follower! We will see how things go, but I am still worried about my girls ending up as scrappy looking as the new ones. There were two small eggs offered up yesterday, one white and one slightly tinted. The Shumens are white egg layers so there is a possibility that the other is from one of my girls, maybe Venus as her comb has suddenly turned bright red and she is flirting shamelessly with Sevi. They were both very small, we will have to see. A lot of the eggs in the shops here are tinted rather than brown.
Had to rescue a tiny ladybird from the pool yesterday. Who would have thought you could fit so many spots onto such a tiny thing?
