|Scots Dumpy and Australorp|
|Two blue Orpingtons|
These are the Mister's observations from today:
- When he opened the door he found all of them on the perch, except for the Australorp who had waddled over to greet him
- First down the ramp was the Australorp
- Our two cats met the hens for the first time! They had a good look at the hens through the window first but then the cats got a bit bored with them. When the cats were let outside, one of them was a bit astonished at first by the sight of chickens close up (with the cage was still separating them). All of the hens huddled together and stood staring at our cat. When the cat suddenly rushed towards them they all four scattered into their wooden roofed run for protection, but they didn't stay there long. Both cats seemed to get along with them and soon got back into doing their own cat-like things
- Colin tried them on a few bits of lettuce but they weren't interested
- Australorp was croaking a lot today and spent most of the morning inside the house
- later found our second egg in the nest box!

What do you think would make a good hen name?
