I let the hens out and scattered some corn for them to scratch.
11 happy hens!
Then I went back to the coop and let Curly out of the carrier.
She was not so happy.
She went back in the coop to eat in private.
Then she left to join the flock...
where a nasty little Wyandotte jumped on her
and started pecking her neck.
I ran over and chased away the Wyandotte
and followed the chickens out to the woods.
Curly stayed near the Buff Brahmas and Pasty the White Brahma,
who don't bother her,
and on the edge of the flock.
All the chickens seemed much more interested in scratching
the leaf litter up
than in tormenting Curly.
Curly seemed more interested in watching the other hens
than in scratching.
I counted 9 chickens...
and went looking and found the two bossy Buff Orpingtons
and an Australorp off by themselves.
I watched Curly for quite awhile and the hens didn't bother her again.
Hope things go better for her today.
4 eggs today
Had them for dinner.
I made tostadas.
Should have taken photos, but ate them up too fast.
