They doing well in their coop. They go in every night at dusk and get on the roost. Lavern is always the last one to get on the roost and the others don't give her any room so I help her out occasionally.
I still can't figure out if Laverne or Lucille is on the bottom of the pecking order. Lillian is such a tyrant. She is constantly bullying the others, at least there is not one pullet that is getting picked on by everyone. That would not be good.
Lucille is still the shyest. Lillian will peck at me if I try to pet her. The other day I picked her up and just carried her around the yard, so she can try to get used to the idea that I'm actually the top one in the pecking order! I will keep trying to hold Lillian once in a while so she gets used to the idea that I'm bigger than she is.
I've been trying to finalize the plans for the bigger chicken coop and hope to break ground on it soon.
