Success with Problem 1: The first night the girls & boy freaked out and had to go back into the shop. The second night I finally got them settled and asleep in the coop, although they slept in a little pile on the shelf behind the roost. The wind became so strong in the middle of the night, I knew they wouldn’t be sleeping much. Last night, I felt like such a success! Most of them walked up the little ramp to the roosting area by themselves and all settled in and fell asleep. They were still in a little pile instead of the roost, but that’s okay.
Hoping for Success with Problem 2: I’m bringing home Mary Poopins and Waffles today, plus 2 – 4 more. The barred rock will be Mary Poopins. I just like the name Waffles, but I’m thinking it will be Waffles the Welsummer.
