Our newest girl, "Smiley" (named by our youngest), enjoying her first dust-bath since her arrival.
Today they took a rest. The three old girls were back in the veggie patch in the chook dome, while the new girls, including our newest, got a chance to get to know each other a little better in the permanent chook pen. I was very pleased to see the pecking non-existant with our 'chief pecker' away from the scene. The new one has been staying in a sectioned off part of this pen, so she can still interact with the others but without the violence.
After spending an exhausting day on a school farm excursion with my youngest today, I am planning a quiet day of 'wing clipping research' tomorrow!
