|All looking very lost!
|Easter Egger & Blacktail
As dusk fell, only the Copper Star flew up to roost without any help. The others flew up on the roof, the fence - everywhere looking for somewhere to spend the night. One even flew up and landed on me! Funny how, after all the specialised breeding and hybridisation, their instinct is always to look up high for somewhere safe to roost away from predators. The following night all 5 found their way to bed! Such intelligent girls! Fresh water, oyster shell, grit and a hopper full of layers' pellets is all on hand and they are now enjoying exploring their new Bamboo garden and conservatory dining room and feeling much more at home! Soon, they will grow their combs and, in a few weeks, they should start laying.
