Adding the 5 new comers to the existing flock was not without it's problems! A few bullies emerged ( my two white rocks) and because of this, one of my new buff orpingtons obtained a bloodied rear end. We brought her in for the night, and then coated her almost non-visible wound with blue-kote and sent her back in the next day.

And now, after a week, everyone is getting along. Also, we are done with all of the structural building on the coop and run. We spent 6 hours yesterday putting up the posts and chicken wire. Joe will make the door today. The chicks are all about 7 and 9 weeks now, and are better than watching TV! We bought a pair of Adirondack chairs and have the set up facing the run...
