    Hugging a Chicken
    Gloria, Nellie and Penny were introduced to a new resident here!
    Introducing, our rescued Bantam Black Australorp! She is EXTREMELY small and very friendly.... but we need a name for her. Her last owner was worried that in a big flock she may not do well, so we thought.... well, why not have another? She is almost 4 months old.
    Any suggestions for names? I would like the name to have something to do with being small and black.

    Congrats! I'd call her Inky, but I'm terrible at giving names.

    I have a black Jersey Giant named Coco, as in chocolate. And we love her to pieces. She's a talker and if you speak softly to her, she'll speak softly back. But if you get louder, she gets louder and the two of us have these great shouting matches. She is the boss!

    Nice looking hen! I didn't know that there were such things as Bantam Australorps. I guess I'm out of the chicken loop. I'm a guinea-holic!

    I didn't know there was either! She may just be very, very small for her breed, but to me she does look like a bantam. I will weigh her tomorrow.
