They are settling in pretty well. We still occasionally hear a squawk when one of the little ones tries to get to the water, food, bug, compost, etc. before the older girls, but overall they've settled in well. Tonight when I shut them in they were all roosted together like one big happy family.
They've been here for a week now and can now find their way out of (and back into) the hen house. They've also discovered that the wood's edge is a great place to hunt for bugs. So far, they're not following the lead of the two Ameracana acrobats and are staying off the fence and out of the garden. Let's hope it stays that way.
