It’s been four weeks since our newbie gingernut rangers joined our urban flock. And despite a period of vicious hen pecking they have settled in nicely. They are now all laying and roaming together.

Well, yesterday it rained like you wouldn’t believe and the chickens bless them seemed to relish standing out in the miserable cold weather.
