I've been trying to cheer up Lacey today. She's had some mealworms and then she went to this little shed that the rats destroyed last year. She loves it and when ever I open it she never leaves it. So she was looking at it so I went and cleaned it out for her and whilst I was doing that she was peaking through the holes. When it was done I opened it and she went straight in and was in the there for ages. She was still in when I left!
Give the hens a bag of mealworms and once I ran out I got harassed for ages!!
Well that was a stressful morning at the hens !! was all going well but then I saw Jeremy duck sneaking to go find Lacey. I looked up and he had found her and was chasing her. He was getting close and I could tell he was going to get her but I was ages away and had to like run a maze! On my way I came across top hen PL fighting with Poppy, the new Maran girl. Last time they had a fight it got messy so I was like caught between the two situations. Next thing I saw was that Jeremy was on Lacey with her screaming, so grabbed PL and shoved her in the food shed and ran to Lacey's rescue. By the time I got there Jeremy was still on her because as some of you may know he's an Indian runner so he's not exactly built for mating a call female. So he got pushed off and got chased away! Let PL out the shed and poppy the maran made her way to the woods. Later PL went into the woods and poppy went over and wacked her one so they started fighting again. As usual with them two it gets real messy real quick and they ended up fighting backed into a corner so I had to split them up in the end. I'm not sure what the new girls problem is with PL. They had little scraps with the other hens and rather won or lost but with PL they like want to fight her to the death. Wonder if it's something to do with her being boss or if they know she's old as she's like 3 times their age. They had a fight a couple weeks ago and they've both only just recovered from that one now as I wasn't there to split it up!
