We pretty much doubled our flock in the last 3 days. We are up to 10 total. We expanded the coop/run and got newbies. Alot for the original group to handle I guess. Anyway.....the pecking order finding ritual is running its course I guess. The question is, we have two groups now that do not mix, at all. The newbies (greasers) will not let the (socs) into the coop until dark and one of the greasers has taken over the favorite laying box and has set up camp. She is broody and sitting on nothing. Pony boy (guinee roo) is trying to take over the new girls and the new boy is not caring about anything but meal time. I think PonyBoy is gonna have to go cause he went from timid to wanting to rumble in no time. As you can tell I am even confused trying to figure out what is going on in there and want everybody to just get along. How long does this usually take? Sorry for all the outsiders references, my daughter has been reading the book and we have been talking bout it alot. One of the best books I ever read!
