Hens meeting their new roommates

The hens are so cute, something happens on the farm and they all know about it straight away and tell each other! Our first bunch of chicks are old enough to go into the hen house, so we set up a small pen next to the hens roost area so they can get used to the new comers before they are turned loose. First we saw one hen look into her house then she yelled and within two minutes we had two hens and one rooster
Then just a minute more and it was hard to walk around in the hen house! Chickens know everything that goes on! When I put the feed into the goat area the chickens are already there waiting... when the cows come up for their feed the hens have been there a good 15 minutes earlier waiting... a dog barks the hens come running to see what (if anything) is going on. I think if our hens could talk I would know if a pin drops around here. :)
Sorry two pictures totally different look, my I-Phone has a mind of its own sometimes!
