    Here are some pictures of my babies--

    Mama is Ginger (BO ) and the 4 are BO, RIR/BO mix and BLS/BO mix... Of course I won't know for sure who is who until they are grown a little....I lost 7 so it'll be awhile before I know who is who or what is what, it was our first hatch ( mom and me )--

    You should name one Tweety. We have a BO named Tweety. (kids named her)



    My chicks were born 10/23 and we have yet to name them. I'm waiting for confirmation on who's roo and who's not. Cuz only 1 roo is staying. So far, definitely 3 roos.

    oooo Tweety is good, thanks for the suggestion!


    I was thinking Hocus for one and Pocus for the other (Halloween Hatchers)

    Jack if it's a boy ( Jack-o-lantern ) of course we aren't keeping the boys

    My daughter said Abra for one and Cadabra for the other...lol but I do like Tweety

    Hmmm, interesting. My bo/bsl mixes were dark fluffies. Can't wait to see how yours looks all feathered out.
