New Additions post-LaVern

Recommended Posts

Since the demise of LaVern we have added two new chooks to the "clutch"; Mojo and Lucille have joined Bessie and Mabel.


We got them from Jayne at Hollywater Hens (very helpful) not far from Farnham. They both surprised us with a couple of small eggs yesterday, much to the annoyance of Bessie and Mabel. There's been a bit of argey-bargey but it should settle down in a day or two. Shame the weather is so dire because we've not really been able to let them out of the run.

Hi Tim,


Pleased to hear about your new chooks. My 3 girls argy bargy behaviour (more like nasty bullying actually) carried on for a week when my new chook arrived. But I only got 1 not 2 like you did (2 is better I think). Anyway, all is fine now after 2 weeks. Just thought you might like to know that.

The mild bullying has pretty much settled down now after three days. We've introduced a new one before; when we got Bessie (our Cukoo Maran), LaVern and Mabel (Omlet hybrids) went apesh*t for a couple of days but quickly became best buddies. The odd squirt with a water pistol when it got too violent worked well.


I'll post some pics in the galllery soon. This weekend they've looked more like drowned rats than chickens.
