The One with General Tso

He's HERE!!

Please meet... General Tso!
(It probably is clear that mom did not name him.
said papa and I got to name him & his future hens.
This should be fun!!)

My friend Lisa, the Crazy Cat Lady, found out that this young rooster was needing a new home. So... as Wally, Stella and Phoenix before him... Lisa brought General to us! I'm realizing now that it's like she's my personal rescue animal placement guru! Mom said after awhile, when we get settled with General and his to-be-acquired hens, if a few goats happened to be needing rescue.......

Don't worry papa. Your sore muscles will certainly feel better by then!

All weekend we worked on turning the old run-in shelter into a chicken coop and yard!

This is BEFORE....

And this is AFTER...

As the two-leggers were working on the new chicken coop, I LOVED trying out the chicken door!

After all of that work, papa played zoomies with us!

And then I squeezed myself onto Phoenix's red pillow for a much needed nap.

Click here for more pictures of the building process!


  1. Zona you are so cute, looking out the chickens door and on the red pillow, aww, i just want to give you a great big belly rub, :) you must be really excited to have a new friend, and the new chicken coop looks brill,

  2. Now,Zona, there HAS to be a story behind that name - do tell:) Do you think you will still be able to use that chicken door now that the General has arrived?

    Cockadoodledooooo - hope he isn't too loud in the morning.

  21. I can tell you and your dad worked super hards on that chicken coop and you did an excellent job too! I love that picture of you peeking out the door. Hope General Tso isn't an early bird and wakes y'all up at the crack of dawn every morning.

    Welcome, General Tso!

  22. Wait a second. Let me gets this straight. You have TWO ducks and now a ROOSTER? And I have...none? Gosh, I'm all kinds of jealous. I mean, I'm happy for you but, well, I think I'm gonna have to go talk to mom about this unfair situation.

    Oh, but please tell General Tso, hello!

    Wiggles & Wags,

  23. Wow Zona that is so cool that you have a rooster now! And the chicken coop looks so good - well, not that we are experts but we think he will love it there! And once he has some ladies, well, it will be a party coop we bet!

    And you look so cute looking in the coop door - too bad you can't go in there to play anymore though - but we bet the General would not be too excited with a dog around (though we doubt you would be looking at him like we would - as a tasty snack!)

  24. miss zona!!!
    you got to bring a rooster home!! that is totally awesome sauce! i looove his name, too. heehee. how many hens are you gonna have? does general tso cockadoodledoo a lot? is it true that roosters do that all day and not just in the morning?? sorry for all the questions, but inquiring minds wanna know! :)
    oh, and you daddy did a super duper good job makin' the chicken house! i think it was way nice of him to still do zoomies with you afterwards even though he was prolly super pooped!

    the booker man

  25. Wow the chicken coop looks great! Zona look you soooo comfy on that red pillow :)
    General is cool!
