    Silva used to be middle on the pecking order but since it started shedding feathers it's been picked on mercilessly. LT (the one on the left with the massive spurs - LT has always been... unique :p) has gone delirious with joy. After years of being the oppressed one LT is now allowed to peck someone else, and takes every opportunity to do so.

    Hopefully Sil Sil's tail feathers will grow back in time for winter lol. (Right now summer is ending down here so it's a reasonable time for a molt. Not all the chooks molt every year though, so we end up with some unfair situations like this. Poor silva!)
