New order

The look of terror in the dog's eyes - and the supreme indifference in the cat's - sum up this new relationship perfectly.

Things are going slightly more smoothly in the chicken house, where Operation Chickentegration has been a success and the two flocks are now living in the same space. There's a bit of argy-bargy going on, but it's not just the older chickens occasionally pecking the younger ones: I saw one of the young hens having a go at the rooster twice this morning. Brave beast.

The chicks are happy to stay in the relative security of the barn and the adjoining run and they don't mix with the older hens much at the moment.

It would be best that they don't mix much with the older hens. The older ones may want to see some social strata and hierarchy to be observed... ~bangchik
