    So I had too many big beautiful Roos... Last evening I found homes for them

    Now the 7 little beautiful hens, who were brood-mates with the big beautiful Roos, are a bit out of sorts this morning.[​IMG]
    Right now they should be hanging out in the sun like usual. They venture out a little but are roosting inside more than usual.
    Normal response to disappearance of friends? Has this happened to you? They are only 8 weeks old...poor little bitties.....

    They will probably return to normal soon, they were probably just thrown off by the change
