Learning to live together
So it's been a couple nights now that the two generations of ladies have been sleeping together. As I wrote in a previous post, the first night almost none of the babies were brave enough to try to claim a spot on a perch. Mostly they slept in a big pile on the floor.
I went in to see where they were tonight and was delighted to find a change. The adults were on the top two perches and up in the rafters. The little girls were on the lower two perches and on the new small perch I added along another wall. Just a few of them were still on the floor.
It is obvious they are establishing a pecking order, with the bigger birds higher up, but the little ones are finding their place too. They are learning to live together, which is good because they are really all one flock. Progress!
