The flock stuck pretty close togther except for the old ladies. The old ladies are my two original hens and the only two that aren't australorps. These two were used to roaming the yard together and thats exactly what they did. This of course upset Captain Hook who continually sqwaked at them to try to get them to come back to the rest of the flock and they kinda of ignored him.
While Captain Hook was proving himself to be a competent leader of the flock, Joel, our other rooster was proving that he probably should have been born a hen. Joel is actually prettier then Captain Hook and his plummage is more impressive, Captain Hook is so named because he has two crooked toes and his plummage is floppier than Joel but other than that he is what I want in a rooster, he is not aggressive towards humans-so far-and he is taking good care of the girls.
As the snow continues to melt and the days get warmer the flock will get to spend more time out in the yard and hopefully learn where the gate is!
