Hurrah for Me!

I've had the new chook house for 2+ weeks now and everyday have been trying to entice the Blue Andalusians into it. At least they were allowing me to get reasonably close to them!
Well, last night I managed to catch all 4 of them - rounding them up, using the badminton net to throw over their flapping wings, putting my hand over their heads to stop them letting the whole valley know something 'bad' was happening, and finally letting them loose in their new home.
This morning the body aches in a few places, from the bending and hunkering down to catch them. But, I'm so pleased it is done and was relatively easy.
This is 'Blue', he's such a beautiful rooster and very gentle.

Here are 2 of the girls.
