New chickens

We got our new chickens yesterday. They are called Posh, Petal and Indiana. We now have nine hens. We might have to get rid of one of the black chickens because it is lame and one of the other chickens is picking on her. Right now all of the chickens are in the poly tunnel so they can get used to each other. Some of the brown hens got into the black hens pen and started bullying them. Because the earth in the poly tunnel is really dry the hens really love having dust baths in there. When the new hens went in the poly tunnel at first they were having dust baths for ages and dust was flying everywhere. I will put some pictures of the new hens soon.
