It’s hard to see but this is Raymond, and the new chickens inside a wire pen. Everyone’s outside today because it’s sunny and warm, and both the dogs and the big chickens need to get used to the babies.
I’m hoping to get the babies out of the cold frame soon (in part, because I need it) but for now, everyone’s just kind of hanging out out there, separated by a little wire.
Raymond has the most trouble — he really really wants those chickens. For a while this morning he was lying down next to the pen, as if he was guarding them. Then the big chickens came by and sort of pecked around for a while. I’m not entirely sure how I’m going to handle two different foods when I integrate them, but I guess I’ll figure that out when I get there.
