Fun! And true...I hope you're well - I tracked back a bit through your blog and spotted holiday news, hen news etc. Our Valkyrie (the little depressed hen) is holding on in there - she is reasonably well integrated now but has placed herself at the bottom of the pecking order (I swear, none of the others did that, she did it to herself) and tends to only eat when the others have had their fill. I think I see signs of minor rebellion in her, though - go Valkyrie!
Sorry but I have added word verification to try and curtail the unprecedented amount of spammers recently posting comments. I will try this rather than stop Anonymous Users commenting for the time being to see if this will solve the problem. Thank you for your patience.
