Today Elenore Hen took her chicks out of the hen house for the first time. She only has three as one died of mysterious circumstances. The three remaining are: Mr. Gibson; Rebecca; Chicklet.
Thank you for helping name them. Rebecca came from Yvonne. I selected it for the yellow chick because I have a blonde cousin named Rebecca. Renie suggested several names and mentioned a chick she had once owned named Chicklet. That wasn't one of her suggestions but I stole it because it is such a cute name as you have all agreed. Lucy suggested Mr. Gibson and I don't know why, but the last chick to hatch has a white dot on top of its head which can indicate a rooster, so we believe we needed a boy's name. If it turns out to be a hen, we'll just change to Mrs. Gibson.
Today I saw David and Goliath for the first time since Miss Hissy moved them out of the hen house. They are pretty and healthy little kittens.
The Chase is on for the Guinea Fowl as the males battle for the one female. Michael found a cache of their eggs and we're hoping to have them under a broody hen soon to hatch them.
