Ranae Zeller - Little Ben

After having just completed 4th grade, Ranae is spending most of her time with her 4 geese (Luigi, Sody, Sonny and Cher, 4 ducks (Pickles. Noisy, Midnight and Wingman) and 6 chickens (Sneaky, Disappearing Chicken, Crystal, Stripy). She spends her summer swimming in the Mattole River, climbing trees and reading books to her birds in the evenings.  Covid took quite the toll on having friends over to play and she is now transitioning back from her feathered friends to her old dear friends (who thankfully don't poop in the house). Ranae says she likes acting because she doesn't have to do chores and the crew brings her gloves and a jacket when she is cold...and snacks.
