The score is 10 to 2.

The score tonight is 10 to 2. The 3 hens who roosted for the first time last night have been joined by 7more and once again they are all together on the top roost. Just Ginger the Road Island Red and the Barred Rock Bantam on the ground. This little Bantam hangs around a lot with Ginger so I suspect it is just down there to keep her company. Ginger has developed a problem with her left leg and roosting might not be too comfortable for her right now. If she walks slowly you don't notice a problem but if she tries to run she has a noticeable limp. I caught her this afternoon and examined the leg I don't think anything is broken or dislocated so hopefully it is just a sprain or something that she will grow out of. An interesting thing happened when I was examining her it took her a while to settle down so I held her and talked to her then once I had finished my examination I just sat her on my lap so she could leave whenever she wanted to and she hauled her feet up under herself and settled in for a chat sat in my lap for almost 10 minutes.

The score is 10 to 2.
