Let all the hens – established flock and newbies – out together yesterday morning and left both the main run and the small hen house open so they could choose where to roost that night.  I half expected to find them all snuggled up together in the gypsy caravan when I went to shut them in, but no.  The usual girls were in the gypsy caravan – the new girls had returned to their separate coop.  So clearly whilst they are happy to mix in the wide open space of the back garden, they are not yet ready to share roosting space.

I’ve let them all out again this morning – be interesting to see if they’ve all made friends by tonight.
