New hens

copper black Mar 13

We got another two hens yesterday, a copper black (above) and a white leghorn.

white leghorn Mar 13

We already have one of each of these breeds. The copper black lays a chocolate brown egg, the white leghorn lays white eggs. Both have settled in though there is the usual bullying that happens when new birds are introduced to an existing flock. The copper black looks like she will give as good as she gets and won't be low in the pecking order.
