    She was hatched Thursday, and she's such a sweetheart. She's a welsh harlequin, so she'll be gorgeous when she's older. She has a little heart on her beak, see?

    She needs a good name :) She tried to hatch before she even absorbed her yolk, so I had to put her in a Ziploc bag contraption so she could absorb it and it wouldn't dry out:

    And here she is just after she finished:

    I'd love some name suggestions for her! I'd especially love names that go along with the heart on her beak, or any fall-themed names. Around here, Pumpkin, Apple, and Cider are already taken so those are out. Any help is greatly appreciated!

    Here's a picture of her yesterday. She really needs a name, little sweetheart.

  7. I would name her "Juicy Fruit" for a couple of reasons:

    after Juice Newton - singer of "Queen of Hearts" (because of the heart on her beak and it's a great song).

    Hearts are symbolic of love, and Juice is relative, because of the Fruits of the Spirit, the greatest being love.

    Thanks for all the suggestions guys! I loved them all, so I decided to let her pick between your suggestions, some names I was playing with, and some names my friends suggested. I said them all to her and the name she responded to most was the one I went with. She chose Cupcake! As soon as I said it to her she started peeping back to me and ran over and tilted her head up to look at me :D
