The Little Ladies

My little Buff Orpington ladies are growing and have moved to the Little Coop.  It took them a few days to settle in, and they are still a bit skittish, but they are having a grand time scratching about, chasing moths, and exploring the nooks and crannies of their new abode.  Given that this breed originated in the United Kingdom, I have decided to give them classic British female names.
They are, from left to right, Blossom, Easter, Queenie, Tuesday, and Maida.  It's a bit hard to tell them apart in person, as well as in the photo, but Maida has a naked bum currently.  Poor thing, her fuzz fell out and the new feathers haven't come in yet.  Good thing they sleep in a pile on the straw-covered floor or she'd be rather chilly in the night.
