Sylvia and Adeline also don't seem keen on the perches but cuddle together in a corner at night - perhaps they prefer it that way - time will tell. They are both big hens so perhaps it is more comfortable on the floor.
This morning when I went over to say hello and give them some broccoli and other treats (weeds to us) there was a lot of extra clucking going on. I could see Sylvia in one of the nest boxes and she produced a wonderful, medium sized, clean and beautiful egg! The first!
This is all really exciting. I'm looking forward to it all!
