It's A Hen Fight Fowl Doings

So, after the Chicken Move 2013, I left everybody in their coop/run for a while to re-boot them, so they figure out where they are supposed to live and lay their eggs...(yes, that's the barn cat, Chicken George, hanging out with the chickens again lol!)

After a week or so, I decided that it was time to let everybody out together to free-range...I figured the roosters would have a little tussle over territory, like they usually do...

but this time was a little different...one of the hens chose the Red rooster...

then one of the Americana hens chose one of the Red hens...

then it was the Reds turn to go all Matrix on the Americana...

It only amounted to a few chest bumps, then the girls went their separate ways, with no harm done other than maybe a little hurt feelings lol...

The only other fall-out from the move was this Americana hen...she has decided to abdicate altogether, and has moved into the dog house...she is very sweet and would like to come into the house to live, but I never have any luck potty training the hens lol! Stay tuned, next time I'll let the combined Reds out to free range for the first time...I'm wondering if we'll have to wrangle all 33 of them back into their coop at night, and how long that'll take lol! Until next time, happytrails!
