The chooks have arrived!

Here are the girls who arrived yesterday. The black one is Beryl and the ginger one is Hilda (don't ask). Everything seemed to be going smoothly until it came to bedtime. Beryl would not put herself to bed in the coop and I had to stand out in the pouring rain until lots of coaxing (i.e. a broom handle) made her retire for the night. We were at it for about an hour.

This morning I made sure I opened the door nice and early (6.30am!) so they could get out and about but they refused to come out! I can see this is going to be a difficult relationship....
