We named the lavender orpingtons!

Since their heads don’t stop moving, I introduce Who?, What?, and Huh?:

Here’s Buttless.  The poor guy got stuck with that name as a chick.  We didn’t know it was a breed trait to not have a tail.  He’s coloring in nicely.  His feathers are getting more and more green shine to them, and he’s getting gold tips to his feathers.  Pretty boy.

This is Laverne.  We have a Shirley too but she was camera-shy this morning.  Laverne is a bit bigger, bossier, and has a bigger beak.

A chicken hawk has flown over a few times, so we did some decorating with tulle fabric:
