Power balance: more chicken news

I think the power balance may be tipping in favour of the original five chickens. I'm not sure S and E left the run this morning and one of the Black Rocks (Boss I think) was guarding it as if to say, don't make a move out if you know what's good for you. It's a bit like a gunfight before the shooting starts, when they're sizing each other up and snarling insults from either end of the street. Still no one seems the worse for wear, we're getting eggs and they all went off to bed together again.

Chickens are such bizarre creatures. It never ceases to amaze me how much personality they have.

BTW, I've tagged you for an award!.

Very interested to read about adding to your chicken empire as we have six at the moment, four of whom we raised from eggs, and I would like to have some more.
I must admit that I keep putting it off in case it is all a bit of a pain so I am glad to see yours seem to have settled down.
Lovely pud recipe too!
