    I was JUST talking to my mother about this. My three year old named his yet-to-arrive chickens.

    Two silver spangled hamburgs: "Swiper" and "Polkadot"
    One GLW: "Wheelchicken"
    One SLW: "Nose"

    He's a funny man!

    Oh! And my nine year old has declared that the whole crowd of meaties should be called "The Roast Family".

    Roo- Huck-a-buck
    his 4 ladies...Sister Mary Agnes (her muff and beard look like a habit)
    Sparrow
    Jane with No last name
    Half-Pint (runty little girl)

    Bantam Roo- Lord Wellington
    his ladies...Mrs. Thistleswait
    Amelia
    Betty Boop

    then we have 25 meaties...only the runt has a name...Little Joe. our cousin, who is 12 and very small in stature (my 9 yr. old towers him) saw that the chicken was small and asked why it was so little. i explained that he was born that way and he was mighty in his own right. he looked at me, smiled and said, "then, i am naming him Little Joe, after me!"
