There's a new queen in town

A few nights ago there was a coup -- Joanie has taken over as top chicken. This means she gets first rights to all treats and to the coveted sand box. Long live Queen Joan.


What do you call a coup in the coop? A chicken coop coup?


  1. Hi there! We are Elizabeth's Garrett's new neighbors and we are exploring the possibilities of having backyard chickens! She told me to come to your blog, before you became quite famous! :) We would love to chat with you and maybe get some advice so that our landlady is convinced that having chickens will be an okay thing here. We also plan to go to the meeting on Oct 26th! Thanks! Kit

  2. Hello, and welcome to town! If you want to come over and see the ladies and their digs in person, you'd be more than welcome. Elizabeth can give you our email addresses (or, barring that, you can google us pretty easily) and we can set up a meeting.

    The chickens are hours of entertainment, and we hope that you'll be able to get some of your own soon!

  3. Ah shoot! I missed the open coop!

    I will contact Elizabeth and see if we can get together to see your ladies soon!

    Thanks Andrew!

  4. You didn't miss it: it's next Friday (at our house) and the following Monday (at our friends' on Parkview).

  5. Good! We will plan to come over on Friday afternoon!
