Since I wrote about it last, we went through a couple more stages of integration where I isolated the two groups in separate parts of the run and coop and also allowed them to be together unsupervised for an hour or so at a time. I was nervous about the unsupervised time together but I shouldn't have been. Abby did bully them a bit, but the babies are full grown now and the coop is big enough to allow for space for them to get away.
Don't get me wrong. The two groups are not friends. Well, Abby at least isn't and will likely never be friendly with Pearl and Elsa. But Frannie is when Abby isn't looking so it's ok. Knowing the integration is complete is a huge weight lifted off my shoulders!
And Pearl is going to lay any day now... so excited!
