From left: Nugget, Dumpling (aka "Dump Truck" or "Yard Shark"), Gwen, and Tribble Tribble giving the old stink eye: Tribble's funky beak: Gwen, the painted chicken (she got too close to the garage after we'd painted): Gwen about to goose the cat, Mira. Mira is not amused by Gwen, and has finally started to stand up for herself: Nugget, our skittish RIR. This is about as close as she'll let me get to her, despite my having raised her from a wee chick. How the "Yard Shark" earned her name: The "Yard Shark" lying in wait to mug the next hapless, food-bearing victim: Tribble was bigger than our standards when we first got her. I can't believe it now!
