Now, Now Girls!


The Ukrainian Village is now filled to capacity. I collected the refugee hens last night and one by one, I checked each hen over , treated each one with the anti parasitic panomec solution and then divided the group into four hen houses. The refugees will be locked inside their new quarters today and will be let out tomorrow. 32 new hens!
There will be a brawl like one of those  great Western Movie Saloon fights tomorrow.
You will hear the aggressive clucking from space....hens can act like  groups of bitchy drag queens when they meet up for the first time.

  1. Perhaps a remake of the animated film "Chicken Run" could be shot on your property. It would save money on plasticine. You would of course star as the farmer Mr Tweedy and Aunt Gladys could step in as Mrs Tweedy. It would no doubt be very popular in Ukraine...and Rhyl.

  2. Rule one of drag queen fighting, rip the wig off.

    Rule two, expose your opponent's chest.

    Rule three, open to suggestions.

  6. I will keep an ear out! It would be much easier if you'd video it, though, seeing as it will probably be 2 am here when the gala gets going.

  8. In your post yesterday, you said there were two cockerels. Will they be kept separate, or are you putting each one in one of the new spaces with the 10 hens?

    1. One cockerel is the grandson of my " original " duncan.
      He will be allocated the new hens at the bottom of the field.
      Theother cockerel will be housed in a run on his own and rehomed at some stage Megan

    2. Great your Duncan lives on!

    3. If the cockerels were okay together at their last place chances are they will continue to co-exist quite happily at yours if you can't manage to find a home for the other one.

  14. John, I have had good luck by placing the new chickens in the henhouse after dark when the others are all asleep, when they wake up in the morning and I let them all out of the henhouse they are all friends and don't fight.
    I lost one of my oldest "girls" last week, makes me sad, even when they have been provided a good life and die of old age it feels as though I have lost a friend.

    good luck with your new "biddies" have you named them all yet?

    Good on you for taking them, John. And, no questions asked! You're a good man.

  16. No doubt it will be quite a show - the meeting of the hens. What do you suppose they cluck about? I bet it is something like, hey! My egg's bigger than your egg.

  18. The Hurricane's yoga instructor sometimes livens up his classes by chatting about dressing in drag. Perhaps The Hurricane should ask him about drag queen battles.

    Love,

  19. They'll soon settle down John and all will be peace again once the top hen has emerged. If anyone can look after them it is you.

  23. Well, my dear friend Hilary told me about this here introduction of new chickens into an established flock. She said it was pretty much like a cocktail party, had to be approached carefully.... Still, like I said before, with the fox the other side of the fence, I will never know. Sad, really, but never mind. Good luck and I would love to see that 'gunfight' video!

  24. 32? Wow. Congratulations?
    Good luck! :-)

  25. So you are going to unleash 32 chickens at one time? It'll be forever known as Battle in the Bosoms.

  26. What you need to do is put William the dog in a policeman's outfit (the picture on the right side of your blog) to stand guard snarling every time one of them opens their mouth. I'm sure it will do the trick.
