Ex-battery hens update
Finally the new ex-barn hens have been accepted by the ex-batts. They still pick on them occasionally but not nearly as much,and they are totally integrated both day and night. The 3 ex-barns still stick together while free ranging.
Zinnia is starting to grow new feathers, and so are the other bald hens. This is Zinnia now, I will post another picture when she is all feathered up. The feathers are just little black stubbs in their skin at the moment. 11 eggs today, nearly a record.
