It was delightfully sunny today, so I figured I'd let Annie have a wander around the garden.
She was beside herself, trying to scoff anything that would fit into that little beak of hers.
I guess she's been hatched in an incubator and raised under heat, as her 'big hen etiquette' needed a bit of work. Trying to extract that juicy bit of sweetcorn from Violet's beak, was never going to be a good move.
Luckily it was Violet and she was just sent her on her way with a quick scolding.
Chickie has now learnt to be mindful of the ladies...
Only Ruby had a good peck and grumble about Chickie, she is very protective of her No3 status.

Chickie tried to dust bath in the grass, so I picked her up and popped her in the official dust bathing spot.
She sat still for a while...
...then there was no stopping her!
Violet strolled by, looking gargantuan and cast me a look that said "You ok'd this right?".
The girls busied themselves bug-hunting by the coop, whilst Chickie ran amok.
Ruby is notoriously difficult to get a picture of but I managed to get a lovely one today :) (I had zoom on max!)

I think Chickie is settling in well :) x
