Babs and Ginger 3

The hens are settling although the winds have been wild, with warnings of gusts of up to of 110 kph; on Saturday there was heavy rain for a short time and the birds were happy to shelter.

Ginger and Babs are eating more, they are enjoying pecking at carrot, apples and spinach, they enjoy basking in the sunshine.

Babs was lying down and Ginger tried to tuck herself under Babs’ wing, it reminded me of a chick trying to find comfort and warmth from it’s mother and made me wonder how young the hens are.
