Well, part 2 done now – we’ve been through the 37 hens in the brown house, identified and counted the old and new hens and double ringed the new hens.

We have 20 old hens and 17 new ones. We’ll move the old ones into the Scratchers arks and see how the young ones are performing, then put the green and brown house hens together – the house will take 45 at a pinch and we’ll get a new batch of forty for the green house (and Dumpy).

So a cull looms  :-(   and I’m off to sort out a new batch of pullets.
