🐔 Welcome today to Doris, our new Warren ginger chicken, age around 22 weeks. Always wanted a brown one too ! She’s been in the run with the others from early evening, a few pecks later Doris has stood up to them & doing fine, she’s quite the bossy one ! Just checked them all for bedtime & all nice & quiet in the coop, left the door open if she feels like moving around, but looking good so far 👍
Had been advised to gradually introduce her so put the fence panel inside the run, but she wanted none of that & through the panel she climbed ! So let her carry on🐔
Dust bath time, settled in well then ! Let’s see how they all are in the morning 🐔🐓🐔🐓
Update first morning Sunday… Doris sat in with Pam & Dawn this morning all cosy (they’re still brooding), all up & about now, great ! 🐔 Monday morning….bit of pecking with Nessa & Doris if they’re near each other !
As far as the brooding is concerned, have read that need to close the coop, stop them entering it & see if that stops Pam & Dawn ? Will let Doris settle this week & then give it a go, have just put door on side of coop for now to stop that entry & main door will give it a go next, Wednesday…..giving it a try & closed the coop 🐔🐓🐔🐓
