The next night at bedtime

Last night I repeated putting the bin bag over the amigos perch and once more Dandelion perched on the back perch. This time I decided to leave her and see what happened so I removed the bin bag and kept checking back to see what was going on.

The bigger girls made their way in and Dandelion stayed put and they took no notice of her. Cinnamon and the silky girls perched on their side. The amigos soon settled on their perch.

I have decided that if Dandelion would prefer to be on the back perch with the bigger girls and they are not bothered by her being there then it is best that I just leave her to it. I think she prefers their company to the silky girls.

It is best that the girls sort themselves out with me interfering so I will just carry on with this and see if this will be the new routine. It seems that they have their own ideas of what they want and as long as there isn’t one girl on her own I am happy with which ever position they choose.

    Generally, they sort things out for themselves and all appears to be well. Lovely-looking flock.

      You are so right. Last night we were out and didn’t get back home until after their bedtime. I checked on them and was surprised to find Dandelion perched with the amigos. I decided that I will just leave them to it from now on. They are obviously able to sort it out themselves.
