How to Name Six Chickens
Here’s a quick photo essay to introduce you to our little flock (now 5 weeks old).
Photo Caption: This is "Combustion Spur Lava Beak" (named by my daughter), an Easter Egger who will lay blue, green, or pink eggs. I'm not sure what a suitable nickname for her will be...
Photo Caption: "Mrs. Poultrious BokBok" (named by my fiancée) is a lavender/orange Easter Egger. She'll be known as Mrs. BokBok most of the time.
Photo Caption: "LaZertron Eggonater" (also named by my fiancée) is a cuckoo maran that lays dark brown eggs. I've been informed that her correct nickname is "Ol' LaZertron."
Photo Caption: "Miss Lilac Luna Pumpkintoes, Fairy Killer Extraordinaire" (named by me) is absolutely the cutest Easter Egger ever to exist. I've been calling her "Lilac" but my daughter prefers "Fairy Killer."
Photo Caption: "Pecksterecksious Radioactive Alpha Peep" (named by my daughter) is a rose comb brown leghorn who lays white eggs. She answers to "Peckster."
Photo Caption: And this is "Acorn" (named by me). She's a brown leghorn, too.
It’s amazing that it only took 5 weeks for them to go from this (the extra 21 chicks in this video go to some farming friends of ours):
Photo Caption: We can't wait until our girls start laying eggs!
Yay for our chickens!
