Fran's first day out in the world with the new chickens is working out. She spends a lot of time in the barn, but the chickens seem to be accepting her – she got whacked around a bit this morning – and she comes out, pecks around for an hour or two, and then heads back into the barn. So this is the way we have decided to leave it, Maria and I, that we have done what we can and not it is up to nature and the ways of chickens. I think it will be fine. So does Maria.
