NAME THE DEBUTANTES
Here is the happy mama Elenore Hen with her new babies. I moved her with her nest into the nursery box so Elenore could get food and water and move around with her chicks. The top picture shows all three of her chicks. There are two that are black with white markings and one yellow. In the forefront of the top picture you see another egg in the process of hatching but that one didn't make it. The second photo shows the yellow chick admiring her mother. Elenore is back on the nest and since other hens continued to lay eggs in her nest, I might give her another day to see if anymore begin to hatch. I will then move her on the hen house floor with the three chicks.
With all the many chickens I have had, I am running out of names. I welcome your suggestions for naming Elenore Hen's three chicks.
