feathered runaways

Well three new additions to the Coop..Consuella,Evita and Frida K ..

They were amazed to discover each other (Prudence,Petunia,Violette and Luciano that is ) after I had carefully tucked them in the night before..

The next morning a fair bit of excess shrieking and carrying on occurred..with Luciano crowing "Jackpot!" and hysterically chasing the new arrivals around in circles..I forgot chickens can fly..

Despite my high fences..chicken wire etc..over and out they went!
Two nights with one or the other sleep in in the trees..lots of fruitless chasing..and finally..sweet harmony..all are cuddled together in their endearing puffiness with only an occasional warning "peck" The order has been established!
