So the last few days we’ve been letting the chooks free-range together to get to know each other.
There have been a few ups, and a few downs, but they are slowing becoming one.
Geraldine, who is at the bottom of the pecking order of the existing flock, has been the most vicious – drawing a little blood on one occasion. I guess she’s fed up being the lowest ranking. Though the new chickens are about as big as she is … so I suspect that any escape from being at the bottom of the pecking order may be short lived.
