    I just finally got around to adding ID bands so that I can tell the girls apart while they're growing. Once they're adults I'm sure I'll figure it out, but for now they all have a different color band.

    I have 6 Barred Rocks and 3 Silver Spangled pullets. Here are some names I saw. Feel free to tell me which ones are good, which ones stink, or add some of your own. Thank you!

    My proud mini chicken mama thanks you, too!

    Cute names! Bennie is actually for Eggs Benedict. [​IMG] I had a hard time naming our daughter...these chickens are proving almost as difficult!

    ^ Aww thanks. It is a dirty blond color right now, but will probably end up dark blonde to light brown like her Daddy and I have. My hair isn't naturally fire engine red. [​IMG]

    Awww, what a sweetie pie chicken mama! Her beaming smile reminds me of my daughter's when she was that age. I like the names you've chosen for now...always drawn to animal names ending with the "ie" sound, lol. Most of my animals have a "may" attached to their names for endearment sake...like maggie-may, ellie-may, etc., lol. Beautiful birds, too.

    Thank you. [​IMG] Now I just for her to figure out that her little wiggling fingers that somehow end up in the brooder look like FOOD to chicks. Yesterday she got clawed by one, spent a few minutes crying, and then was back trying to love on them so much. "I...I just love them so MUCH Momma! I can't stop!" [​IMG]
