I’d like to introduce you to our two new chickens, named Georgia and Matilda. My hubby had been looking into getting some new feathered friends for a few days, then the other day, he just happened to take the long way home from work ( via North Wales!!) and arrived home with these two…
Pretty aren’t they? Georgia is the white one on the left. She’s a Light Sussex, and as we got married in East Sussex at The George, I decided that’s what she should be called. A bit of a tenuous link I know!
We always let our new girls have a run around the living room and have a few cuddles before we introduce them to the other chickens. That’s the difficult but necessary bit. There’s always going to be a bit of a scuffle when you put new girls in, it’s a territorial thing. There’s always a pecking order and it’s a completely natural ritual that has to take place. That doesn’t make it any easier though. A few feathers were shed but it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.
Our big fluff ball Honey is a bit poorly at the moment. She has a sinus infection like a couple of our other girls have had this year. Antibiotics haven’t touched it so she’s going into the vets this week to get it drained. Poor girl 😔
We’re keeping her separate from the others so it doesn’t spread, and we let her roam around the living room last night. After a bit of walking around, she tucked herself into a corner and went to sleep.
Today was a gorgeous day weather wise, so we let all the girls loose in the garden.
