The third morning.

The reptile place was only marginally cheaper than PetsAtHome.

Yesterday (Sunday) afternoon, I snuck some mealworms to Poppy whilst feeding fish cat food to Gloria.  The Allotment hens rarely get treats (which may be why they are so healthy), so Gloria was quite happy. I did feel a bit mean with the deception.

Last night,  Gloria took herself to bed at about 7pm, and Poppy fretted and fretted, taking about an hour to get the courage to go up the ladder and in to the Cube.   I hope this gets sorted out soon, it's stressful enough to watch, I can't imagine how stressful it myst be for Poppy.

This morning, they were both inthe same part of the run,  Gloria has found her voice, making the mock-cockerel noises that Roobarb used to make;  Poppy was calling at about 5.30am: first time she's foound her voice since Wednesday, so I leapt out of bed and rushed outside just in case.

We went to the Allotment at 10, so they were shut in together. Got back at 2pm, and they seemed OK.

Hard to tell if there's been any progress.
