My two Buff Orpington Chickens names are: Circe ( Sear-sea ) and Calliope ( Ka-lie-o-pea )
My two Easter Egger Chickens names are: Persephone ( Purr-sif-phone ) and Dameter ( Da-meat-ter ) *No pics yet

Circe's
name comes from the story of Odysseus. While traveling across the sea his ship came upon an island but on this island was a witch, Circe. Circe lived on this island awaiting sailors to come ashore, for when they did, she would drug the sailors and have them for supper! But not in their human form. For the drug she gave them was not a drug but a potion, a potion which turned men into swine!

Calliope's
name comes from the Greek Mythology. Calliope was a Muse1, she was the eldest of the Muse's. She was the goddess of eloquence, who bestowed her gift on kings and princess. Kalliope was named Muse of epic poetry. She was said to be a young beautiful women and was always portrayed carriering a lyre2.​
Persephone's is the daughter of Zeus and Dameter. She was the goddess of springtime and, after her abduction by Hades she became his wife and Queen of the Underworld for six months of each year
Dameter's Demeter is the godess of corn, grain, and the harvest. She is the daughter of Cronus and Rhea. It is Demeter that makes the crops grow each year. The first loaf of bread from the harvest is scarificed to her. Dameter is intimately associated with the seasons. Her daughter Persephone was abducted by Hades to be his wife in the Underworld. In her anger at her daughter's loss Demeter laid a curse on the world that caused plants to wither and die, the land became desolate. Zues became alarmed and sought Persephone's return. However, because she had eaten while in the underworld Hades had a claim on her. Therefore, it was decreed that Persephone would spend four months each year in the underwold. During these months Demeter greves her daughters absence, and withdraws her gifts from the world, creating winter. Her return brought the spring.
