So, the new coop........
« on: September 18, 2010, 21:17 »
The Sablepoots coop arrived with a run, it's the one they were in with mum and dad when they were at the farm.

We put Bunty ( the blue Orpington) in the run with them (she's still being badly bullied by the other hens) and they got on fine.  So anyway, we've been at Ems and got back about 8 to find them all huddled up together in a corner of the run ::) so had to put them in the coop where they all huddled up together again in 1 of the 4 nest boxes, looks like we have a few nights of perch putting ::) :lol:

That's good news for Bunty, I'm sure they'll all settle in soon.  :D

Same as last night, huddled together in the run fast asleep :nowink:

I think Bunty likes being with the poots, before she was moved I'd put her in the orchard with food, water and shelter but she always went straight over to the run to be near the others.

I'm leaving the bantams where they are for now but if the bullying doesn't settle down they will go in with the poots too :)

It's like dealing with spoiled 2 year olds :nowink:

Update on the new family.

Bunty and the poots are getting on fine together and the bantams, Poppy and Pansy joined them on Tuesday night.

The coop is like a tardis, it's 4 feet square with an apex to 4 feet, 2 low nest boxes and 2 high, there's a high perch and I've put in a log and some branches, so lots of perching space.

There's about 5 inches of Bliss on the floor and the same in the nest boxes.

Last night the poots were cuddled up together in the run and were not happy at being relocated to the coop :nowink:

Bunty was in one of the bottom nest boxes with Poppy in the nest above and Pansy in the nest beside that, the sleepy poots got under Buntys wings and all you could see were their tails sticking out :lol:

As for the perches, empty :tongue2:
