The Girls Come Home to Roost

Recently, I posted about a chicken tractor I built, and then I introduced the three ladies who will live there.

Well, today they moved in.

All three are named for their nature:

Princess rules the roost. She gives real meaning to the idea "the top of the pecking order."

Clueless has some very special characteristics that gave her the very special name.

Lady Lazarus came back from the edge of death. She is, indeed, a lady in the classical, sexist sense: more reserved in her mannerisms, not as eager to discover strange new worlds or boldly go where no chicken has gone before.

They should start producing eggs by fall. They'll begin eating weeds and scraps, and producing compost, immediately.

I'm looking forward to this.

Discovering their new home.

And down for the night.
