    Pumpkinpup and I rode up to see Speckledhen and her hubby yesterday. I piced up 4 Barred Rock hens , Bess, Hannah, Holly and Maddie.

    When I got home I split the girls up, Bess and Hannah went in with Mace, Zoe & Margaret. Maddie & Holly went in with the layers for now, they will go with my Blue Barred Rooster, Skeeter this weekend.

    I go out this morning and of course the first thing I do is check the girls. I see Holly in the layer pen , Maddie I do not see. i start to panick and then my Bronze Tom Turkey moved (they are in the pen next door) and there was Maddie standing beside Prissy (Turkey Hen)

    Here are a couple pics of Maddie making friends, or maybe the scratch looked greener on the other side of the fence [​IMG]

    I found that Sailor had apparently scratched the bottom of the fence loose. Maddie was a good girl I opened the door and she walked back to the layer pen. She also kindly laid me an egg in the Turkey pen. [​IMG]

    Maddie is a goofball. We've always called her Nurse Maddie because her beak must be an inch from anyone getting treated for anything. She supervises all bumblefoot operations, LOL.

    It is always nice to have a nurse around. [​IMG] Someone has to watch what the humans are doing.

    I keep wondering what Maddie must have thought; after all, she's never seen a turkey before!

    Quote:Sailor was more upset about the whole deal, Prissy seemed fine with it as did Maddie. Maybe she thought they were really big and really funny looking chickens.

    Everyone laid an egg today except Holly, I suppose the move and the lack of all of her feathers may have been the cause of that.
