This is Jumping Jack Flash. He is so named, because, as a Bantam Rooster, he has to jump around a lot to achieve his amorous ambitions.
Dennis the Chook (NOT named after me, I hasten to add) has been a constant source of amusement. Not know for her egg-laying abilities, she seems to wander around looking "Gorgeous". Apparently, that's enough for her to justify her space in the Chook Yard.
Ruby Red-dress, however, is a stroppy girl.
Here she is seen giving jumping Jack Flash a lesson on who's actually in charge in the Chook Yard. True to form, though, he was back strutting his stuff, just a few moments later.
And then there's Aunty Molly.
This is a name I have introduced myself, in honour of my ancient and formidable Aunt who ran the Mothers' Club at the local church in Surrey Hills, (Melbourne) when I was a child. You can tell by her pose that Aunty Mollie will brook no nonsense. She is turning up late to an event where, clearly she ought have been invited (but wasn't). You can see her rolling up her sleeves, as she hurries in to join in the fracas. Look out, everybody. She packs a mean punch.
Buddy remains aloof from all that aggressive politics, by keeping himself nice, inside.
