Moving Day

Our little hens moved into the Big House today. They took to their new home immediately and seemed to really enjoy the luxury of space. This brave girl was the first one to climb one of the ladders and made it all the way to the third rung.

This pretty hen decided to pay her respects and stayed for a brief visit before moving off to explore a little further afield.

This is Pearl. She's the only blond in a sea of redheads and brunettes. She's also larger than the others, is one of the more assertive hens, and seems to be developing more quickly. I'm wondering if, perhaps, she's a different breed.

We were all looking forward to this move and I trust their first night in their new home will pass peacefully.

Can't believe how fast they are growing and changing in appearance.
