We made sure they had plenty of water and grain and left them to get use to their new surroundings.
Tonight, when our hens are tucked up in their won house we will let the new girls have a wander round the paddock - they will by now recognise this as home and will return once the light starts fading.
Our girls dont eat much green food ie lettuce and cabbage leaves as they enjoy rummaging in the grass clippings. The new girls however LOVE greens as they were use to a coop where they soon ate all the grass and enjoyed daily treats of lettuce etc. I fed them some lettuce today and they ate it with gusto. Tonight I will feed them lettuce and spagetti for supper. They will enjoy foraging I am sure.
Camera poised....watch this space.
