This is our one remaining original hen, who was so depressed this morning that Mr B came out of mourning for Grey Hen super quick and headed off with TallGirl to buy another one! Relations are a little tense between them, but we hope they will settle down shortly. New Hen has been bemused by the choice of food, turning down mealworms, sweetcorn and porridge in favour of some old grain our hens wouldn’t touch, and a worm.
Tomorrow comes the start of hen training (come when I make the “come here” clicking noise and you get treats) and once that’s done, and she knows where the bedroom/egg room is then she can free range outside the enclosure.
Meanwhile, too much work.
