I did some rearranging with the birds that were in the "teenager house", now that my teenagers are becoming almost-adults. I made a decision on what Swedish Flower Hen Rooster to keep, and put the resulting trio in their own pen. I am selling this pretty boy (anyone interested?) He is 14 weeks old:
I have him alone in a pen for easy catching when I get him sold. That left my three random teenage girls (SLW, Lav Amer, and RIR) in the teenage house. I opened the door to let them out to wander around outside, but they haven't gotten up the nerve to venture out yet. It's only a matter of time before my adult girls wander over there and find the door open - and go in to raid the joint. Hope I get to see that, should be entertaining.
Otherwise, my guineas are 8 weeks old, so I caught one and put it alone - soon she was "buckwheat"-ing away, so I tagged her as a hen and put her back in with her crew. I'll keep doing this until I've determined what everybody is. Happy to have a little hen - I've lost all my guinea hens but one. Hoping for more!
