|Sassy finding water.|
After the initial posturing of the birds, they accepted her into the flock. We kept the four original birds in the enclosure and Sassy in the small coop that was inside the enclosure. The girls were curious, but not aggressive. We let the four out of the enclosure into the yard. We let Sassy out of the small coop and into the enclosure.
Sassy found the food and water, so we knew she would be fine. She also found a bit of sunshine to sit in. Since she has been in isolation for three weeks at the Zoo, she was very cautious. It took her a bit to remember how to be a chicken.
|Scratching for food.|
The new flock stayed in the large coop last night without an incident. Which is good, because it is snowing right now and the temperature has dropped below freezing.
