    Just quick note to let you know how our two warrens (pink and red) have been doing on the roosting front!

    Moving them at night just didn't work, we would creep down with the torch and open the nesting box to find them snuggled together and they would be wide awake as soon as we would try to move them. so we gave up with that idea and put large plastic plant pots in each nesting box so they had no choice, it seems to have worked. But as soon as we forget to put the pots in, they are back in the nesting boxes snuggling up again!

    Our girls have also started laying aswell!!!!!!!!!!!!! They taste so nice and different from shop eggs.
