Our New Brahma Has Started Some Serious Nonsense!

31 Days Hatched. Wednesday, Aug 18th:

It started on Tuesday.  Our new little Brahma, Johnny-Cade, likes to roost on me whenever I sit down near her.

On Tuesday, Johnny-Cade was minding her own business on my leg, when Soda Pop, who seems to be head of the pecking order, jumped up next to her.

With a little flurry of feathers, Johnny-Cade quickly scrambled up to my shoulder for the first time.

Along comes Cherry, the lover of the group.  With her Cherry Gaze, she immediately notices Johnny-Cade up on my shoulder.  Not to be outdone, with a flap of her feathers, Cherry flies to my shoulder, simultaneously ousting Johnny-Cade.

Cute, right?  Except that this morning when I went in to feed the girls breakfast, upon crouching down, Cherry immediately flew to my shoulder.

Even Dallas and Soda Pop have begun perching on my leg.

Whereupon Soda Pop promptly flew to the top of the cage:

Pony Boy also decided to perch on me.

Speaking of Pony Boy, check out her wingspan:

And Two-Bit knows she is beautiful:

Eventually, all of the girls get ready for bed.
