Ohhh the drama!
Finally introduced my the two hens I hatched out to the flock... Poor girls. Snatched up in the middle of the night from the cardboard box they like to sleep in and took them out to the big bird coop so everyone could wake up together. Well turns out they ain't so poor! One new hen has taken over the coop and is perched up on a bin GROWLING at the flock! The rest are literally standing out in the rain and won't go in there!! I found the other hen hiding behind the coop door (ambush?).
So I picked them up and set them by the feeder to make sure they ate. The rest of the birds (who usually flock me when I go out to feed) kept peeking around the corner of the door... New hen growled and almost choked doing so, the old birds ran for their dear lives! One of the roosters who is clearly distressed decided to attack me so my muck boots have a few new scratches (probably occurred when we got into a kicking match) and then he decided (for the umptheenth time) that he was no match for me. Growler stood there the whole time growling and choking on feed... I really like this plucky bird!
I got three roosters out of the same hatch... They are the sweetest birds, now out in their own coop and run. I have to put them in the freezer. Ugh, I REALLY like the "Three Amigos"! Going to be hard!
