Did the same today just to get them all used to each other as they'll eventually all be living together, and still no pecks or signs of aggression from either side :D

Purkinje came down to the patio today to see what was going on but stayed out of the way of the chickens ... there's more of a problem with integrating the chicks and the big chickens even though they've been free-ranging together for 2 months!
I think its because the banties + Purkinje stay at the top of the garden and keep themselves to themselves :)
Jemima on the step by the door:
The pond doesn't have time to freeze properly because they just jump in + crack the ice so it gets slushy on the top
