    This morning I did the deed to poor Isadora!!! [​IMG]
    I wish I had done it sooner and saved her some suffering...[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    So having taken a bird out of the flock, should I expect there to be fisticuffs?
    Will the remaining girls have to re-establish the pecking order all over again?
    I think Isadora was a lower rank amongst the others...

    If she was a lower rank, they probably won't have to re-shuffle much. Maybe the lowest will try to jockey up, but the higher-ups won't care either way. They're safe on top of the hill.
