The second coop is being used to house more pullets. My two chicken Babies arrived at the end of May.
This is Harley – a Silver Spangled Hamburg. Her eggs will be white.
This is Strawberry – a Buff Orpington. She’ll lay a tinted egg.
To add to their confusion, the vegetable garden was suddenly fenced off. All their lovely swiss chard was no longer accessible.
When The Babies finally started coming out, The Old Ladies chased them away from the feeding station. Alternative stations have been created, and The Babies are now let out of their coop 5 minutes before the Old Ladies, to give them some early uninterrupted pecking time with the fresh food.
