I guess Iris will get a new name when she goes to her new digs. Although you'll miss him, he'll have girlfriends and I bet he'll like being a 'stud'.

Would crows hurt or take chickens? Sorry if its a silly question, still learning....
My little girls are fine and they were only 9 and 12 weeks when I got them, they can run pretty fast..... Baby chicks might not be able to get away if someone tried to grab them.
Yeh, I guess he'll get a new name, hopefully one that suits more than 'Iris' does for him, not that he minds I think :) The big sook along with Ada and Annabelle got soaked in the storm today, I had to blow dry them. Despite initial protests, all three of them ended up liking the hair dryer. Stuff like that I'll mention, and all his fave treats for the hatchery owner to pass on to his new family. I hope he'll have some nice ladies that don't scare him, he's still wary of Annabelle poor boy. He'll be so handsome though when fully mature. I can pick out another hen if I want( I'll get them to double check before I go), depends on what they have if I decide to or not.
Wow so much going on.
Teila Love the jungle coop can't wait to see the finished pictures. The trouble with time is when you have it you don't usually have the money and when you have the money time is scarce.
potato chip we get crows coming in too. They haven't worked out the little door we have for the chooks in the run the pigeons have but the girls don't seem to mind sharing with them. But they are ISA's not sure about the Australorps as everyone says they are gluttons.
Fancychooklady your babies are beautiful I can't wait to hatch some more.
Sorry you have to give Iris up. I'm not looking forward to that either. Hoping we don't get too many roos my grand daughters will beside themselves.
Here's the makes shift run I made over the weekend. Had to make it big to fit everyone in. Including the kids and their chairs (they don't like sitting in poo) they want to sit and hold the chicks.
