Well Monday we got 11 layers moved into the City Coop in Englewood. We left Rocco and three layers in Boulder for now, until we have time to process. The move was uneventful and we didn't even sit in rush hour traffic, I guess the chicken gods approved. It was dusk when we arrived, we let our birds in the run and let them drink before roosting. There was some confusion as to where to go in this new spot. That was easily remedied with a solar light in the coop that comes on at dusk and allows everyone to see where to go. The flocks have all gotten along so far in this divided run and coop, except a standoff yesterday am between the two head hens from each flock. Also our young pullets have been desperate to get on the other side of the coop for laying and I had three of them successfully lay in nest box on the opposite side. No fights when the three pullets got into the other flocks side, just needed to lay some eggs is all. I have since closed the gaps in the poultry netting and we got 4 eggs yesterday from our youngsters. Nothing from our older hens, but figured they would stop for a bit with the move.
Spending time at sisters house for Thanksgiving, looking toward to the smoked turkey from their smoker. Yum
Hope everyone enjoys their family time.
