    So I tried incubating eggs, and none of them hatched. So today, we went to our local feed store and and got some chicks. I originally planned to get two chicks. I didn't think they'd have ducklings. Of course, I couldn't go home with JUST chicks or JUST ducklings, so I got two ducklings and two chicks. Here they are :D

    This is one of the ducklings. The ducks were assorted, I think this one might be welsh hairlequin?

    This is the other duckling (I was thinking about naming this one Anerea [an air ay]) I pretty sure this one is a khaki campbell.

    Here's one of the chicks, she is a white leghorn.

    Here's the last one, she is a Rhode Island Red. I was thinking about naming this one Maroon.

    Don't worry, all names will be considered. I've had some REALLY weird names, including:
    Conoco
    Jamaine
    Morhi
    Dusty
    Rusty
    Dayday
    Daily
    Kay
    Jay
    Rueben
    Ruebixa
    Willow
    Share
    Chevy
    Peyson
    Provo
    Peanut
    Chestnut
    Ginger
    Partri
    Lisva

    Here are some names that I wrote down a while ago, but now I'm not sure if any would work. (WARNING, some are REALLY weird)

    Cashew
    Chental
    Charlie
    Cherry
    Cloud
    Damein
    Jannie
    Leo
    Luckie
    Matilda
    Oreo
    Kyler
    Snow
    Corley
    Avery
    Leigha
    Ava
    Tabitha
    Heine
    Raine
    Maryon
    Tilly
    Truett
    Amino
    Maroon
    Aqua
    Sapphire
    Apollo

    Any other suggestion would be great :D

    Okay, I think I've decided on some names. The brown duckling is Anerea, the yellowish duckling is Avery, The rhode island red chick is Maroon, and the white leghorn chick is Lucky.

    aww... I think the khaki campbell chould be "Cashew"!! I think it fits awesome and would be so cute to have a full-grown ducky called Cashew! Great name idea :) :) Are you totally decided at this point?? I have a LOT of names written down and I just love naming animals! :D

    If I found a better name than I would probably change it. It hasn't even been a day yet, so it would be that big of a deal :D
