Naming Chickens

We name everything around here.  Cars, appliances and electronic devices, so naturally the children wanted to name the chickens–even though even Kieran happily tells his chick, “In a few years when you don’t lay eggs, you get to be cooked for yummy chicken soup!”

They’ve not yet named the 4 (?) “mutt” teenage chickens we’ll be getting from Ken’s dad when the coop’s finished…  so far though the names are:

The two Maren’s (both teens; a hen and a rooster) are Eidelweiss and Crocus. (Not pictured)
The Amerecanas are Bunny (Kiffanie’s) and Smudge (Kendra’s)  These two lay fascinating blue-green Easter-Egg colored eggs.
The Rhode Island Reds are Nutmeg and Cinnamon (The children told us they are Ken’s and Mine.)
The Golden Sex Link is Kieran’s: He named it Henny Penny
The Blue Andalusian is Keianna’s: Moonlight
Keegan has the Silverlace Wyandotte: Plume
Kaira has the White Rock: Betty and the Bantum Silkie: Betsy  (She paid for the Silkie with her own money–we only bought one for each child–and the two Rhode Island Reds..)

This won’t continue to be the chicken channel; we’ve been doing lots of other things, but the blog posts just haven’t gotten out of my head and onto my keyboard…

Not all the chicks are pictured, just a few of our new feathered friends:

One thought on “Naming Chickens

  1. You must show us the final coop set up! We would love to get chickens, too. Maybe next house, God willing :o)
    Oh, those chicks are so cute!!
