The Six-Chicks - but no Tom-Tom. {And hopefully no rooster since they are illegal and it would be a HUGE waste of my time to raise an illegal, noisy rooster}

We are taking name suggestions. I have a whole list of names that I like, but the main problem is that Adjoa wants to name 2 of the chickens after our friends, Aimee and Corbin. I'm not sure A&C would like to have chickens bearing their names for the next 10 or so years. Also, I'm not looking forward to talking about how many eggs Corbin is producing, or that Aimee got attacked by a racoon and is no longer with us. {Not that I'm looking forward to announcing a racoon attacking any of our chickens, but I feel it would be espeically confusing or off-putting if it were Aimee}.

So. Do we let Adjoa name 2 of the chicks Aimee and Corbin?

Here's a few of the names I like:

  • Circe
  • Zipporah {Heb. meaning 'bird, a beauty'}
  • Sula {Heb. meaning 'bird, peace, sun'} I especially like this for the yellow one....
  • George Eliot
  • Henrietta & Gretta {Possibly for the 2 easter-eggers that look a like}

And here's one of my favorite clips to honor the origianl Six-Chicks {or rather the movie from which they came, the acutal Six-Chicks are not really all that great}.



Sula is my favorite!:o)
I LOVED 13 going on 30!!!

Name the chickies after your friends, guess it depends on how good of friends you are :) Kids always want to name pets after friends they love!

The Rhode Island Red---Ruby. And if Adjoa calls two after her friends, she will not forget which is which. Or maybe wait to see what their personalities suggest.
