You nearly stumbled your way into Cluckingham Palace, at the time we just had a coop, fortunately that name got vetoed and Coop & The Gang came to pass, but you cant have a coop without a gang.
We’ve been umm’ing chickens for a while, we’re a household at loggerheads as to a suitable family pet, he’s dogs and I am cats. For us, chickens seemed a reasonable compromise for a loving pet but also a working animal with a purpose.
We’re by no means proficient in chicken husbandry, novice is probably being generous as we’re very much learning the highs and the inevitable lows on the job of our life with Coop & The Gang
So heres the gang, scratching, pecking and strutting about. Doris our light sussex formally poofeet & one of the Gang, we have Coop, Mave our speckeldy currently Mave the Merciless and number 1 in the pecking order and top of the gang and Flo our blackrock, formally facepecker and most definitely at the bottom of the pecking order.
