Not Quite What I Intended…

It’s time for Licorice to be with the hens and Buttercup (our rooster). The hens seem interested but Buttercup keeps charging/chasing my sweet little chick. I figure there’s something I’m doing wrong to introduce the chick to the rest of the flock (three chickens).

Before today I had Licorice in the coop with the rest of the chickens but she was in the elevated hen house alone. To help everyone get used to each other I put a wall of hardware cloth in the middle of the little hen house so the hens and Buttercup can sleep in the same area as Licorice and get used to each other.

I left the area so everyone can get used to the new setup and when I got back, this is what I found:

Licorice & Mazie

Not quite what I had in mind…

    • LOL! I knew you’d think this was funny. Mazie LOVES straw (brings it in the house and plays with it). She’s probably in heaven right now – she’s surrounded with straw. I just hope the chickens don’t walk in there and freak out! ha ha

  4. Hi Angela – First time on your blog, and happy to have found you. This picture made me say ‘ahhhhhhh’ out loud. Reminds me of all the barnyard animal camaraderie with Wilbur in “Charlotte’s Web”. So, so cute. Thanks for sharing it.
