the new kids in the coop

May 31, 2012

The ghost in the machine has dissipated, so I can now present our new chickens to you.

Ladies and gentlemen, please welcome:

   Princess Layer – named by Gordon. She

is the most elegant looking of the rookies,

and she knows it.  She’s constantly posing

like this.  She has a strong sense of entitle-

ment.  We’ll see how that plays out.






   Rosie – named by Rosie.  The reddest of all the

girls.  As friendly as Princess Layer is aloof.











   kate – named by kris.  Her necklace of

cream-coloured feathers and confident

attitude reminded me of Katherine

Hepburn.  Elegant yet approachable.







   Ethel – named by Charlotte.  Like her namer, she’s very

direct and doesn’t hesitate to squawk when things aren’t











   Maxine – named by Anonymous.  She’s

mysterious, like Anonymous.









   Justine – named by Dan, my son-in-law’s

brother.  She’s a maverick like Dan.  I don’t

think it’s a coincidence that she’s looking

away from the camera.







   Dang – held by Jude, sort of named by Beanie when she

exclaimed “Dang” after that glory hog Gordon stole the

name she had in mind.  Dang immediately became Jude’s

favourite.  Jude was working on a more magical name

when Slinkee killed Dang.  It was Dang’s adventurous

nature that brought on her demise.  She found a hole

in the fencing and had gone exploring when Slinkee

found her.  Rest in peace, Dang.  We are all just dust

and feathers in the wind.
