Here are a few pictures of the babies. Some, but not all of them have acquired names. I knew from the get-go that the three little fluffy-foot chicks would be named after those co-workers who were so insistent that I get Silkies. A few more have been named after other co-workers who seemed to badly want in on the chicken name thing. Others have been named for a random variety of reasons. One of the little Easter Eggers has a "V" on her head, so she needed a name starting with that letter - she's now Veronica. Another Easter Egger who looks a lot like Veronica except without the "V" obviously had to be Betty. And I am sad to report that I named one of my Buff Orpingtons "Buffy." Yeah, I know. I'll bet nobody's ever done that before. The other Buff Orpington then became Willow by default. None of the Barred Rocks or Rhode Island Reds have names yet - it is hard to tell them apart - and maybe I need to get a handle on their personalities before I come up with names!
