    always changing
    Thurs eve when I went to close to door to the chicken pen, the 3 month olds were in there too. All the big girls were in bed already and these 2 were by the water dish. So, I decided, well I'm going to make them stay in there all night, they have been sleeping in tack room with the silkie, but they need to learn to be with the big girls. Well, the night went well, so I also left them all in there all day yesterday and again all night. Well, at night the younger ones are sleeping lower and then in the morning when the big girls get up, they jump down and the younger ones jump up. But they are not being agressively picked on or anything, so I think this is where they now can stay! [​IMG]
