Lesson 2 don't get in a flap (sorry couldn't resist) about bedtime. Chickens unlike kids are very good at going to bed. They just look up at the darkening sky and put themselves to bed. The funny thing is Martha is the smallest and the bottom of the pecking order, but she is the one who decides when it's bed time. She goes in first and gets right in the corner then the others just pile in on top of her. They do spread out later cos I peeped in to see.
