Update on Fletchers meet and greet
Well today was the day Fletcher was to have is manners with the new hens tested. It didn't fair so well the last time but they are now about 2 months old. This time Fletch was out wandering and I let the girls out so if anyone had to get away they had 6 acres to do so. He was all gentleman, scratched and pecked the ground with them seemed to be very taken with them. Then he grabbed one, pulled feathers out and she screamed. I yelled at him and he took off back to the goats yard. Am I being the over protective parent? Should I just let them out and leave them? I opened their gate and they ran inside. My plan is to open both gates tomorrow and just let nature take it's course, what do you think!!!??? What do you think that peck meant? When should i close them in with Fletcher for the night (then they have no escape in the coop)? I hate it when the kids grow up.
