Let me introduce the flock... To your right we have Ginger. Ginger, a Rhode Island Red, comes from a small town hatchery and is only six days old. She is one of the smallest and is the strong, silent type. I've noticed that she has a touch of narcolepsy and falls asleep without notice. The other girls tried to pick on her at first, but little, fiery Ginger held her own.
To your right we have the Buff Orpington named Scramble. She, like Miss Bunny, should grow pretty large. I thought Scramble was a better name than Shake and Bake...I'm not going to eat her (well, unless she doesn't cozy up to me) I am just going to eat her eggs. She should produce large brown eggs (I think) that will make good scrambled eggs. As you can see, she did not want her photo taken.
My fourth chicken is a Black Australorp. The poor thing doesn't have a name yet. I just can't decide. I am waiting for her personality to shine through and hopefully that will give me some insight to her name. I keep thinking, "if I can't even name a chicken, how am I going to name a CHILD!" The pressure!!! Anyway, the Australorps are supposed to be tame and good egg laying birds. She posed like a statue for this picture so maybe I should name her Hollywood.
I hear that these little ones will grow a lot in the next few weeks and will start to look like baby dinosaurs. You all remember those awkward pre-teen years. I feel sorry for them already.
