    [​IMG]...im so excited. they arrived just before dark. i spent about an hour with them in the new run letting them get used to me a little. they are champion poopers, but it is loose stool, so im wondering if its because of their nerves. pecking order has been established [​IMG] bruitie, as i call her, is the alpha. and hookie(sho has a crooked toe) is low man on the pole. but to my surprise, hookie was the only one to approach me and ate from the feeder beside me. the rest just pecked at the bits that flung out of the feeder to the ground. bruitie had me chasing her around the run for about 5 minutes when i was trying to put them up for the night. i still have yet to name the other 2. guess ill do that once i figure out their personalities. ill post pics in the morning hopefully, so you can see my girls. maybe you all can estimate how old they are.
