    The girls are settling in nicely. Still very skittish when I go on run. They took themselves to bed last night at about 9:30, but failed to get on the roost bar. Two were on the floor and three in the nestbox. I need to put a post on freecycle for a couple of logs to make it a bit more interesting.

    I can only tell 1 apart from the others as she is more brown around the neck. I need to get some leg rings.

          No eggs yet, but their comb and wattles are reddening and one has started to present herself when I go in. Hopefully not long to wait
