We recently purchased 6 shiny new chickens as part of our plan to grow our own food. As there are 5 of us, we let the children each name a chicken, and Tareka named one.
I decided to turn to the internet for help with naming mine, and the 6th chicken who was also nameless. I posted on Facebook and Ravelry (asking b3tans would just get an outpouring of abuse and offensive words that I could NOT let my children use, even if talking about chickens).
I ended up with a few choices I could not decide between, so I put it to the vote and have decided arbitrarily that today is the day the names get picked.
SOoooooo, ladies and gentlemen I give you
|Pirate Chicken (yes she has a wonky neck, but she is fine)|
So far they have given us at least 2 eggs a day since we got them, and they have only just started. They are also getting used to the kids chasing them around and trying to catch them. We will keep them in the pen for another week, then they will be allowed free range of the land, and only be locked in at night.
