    I have a sweet 7 wk old Silkie/cochin X named Ebony.
    Lately, I have been making fun of her name by calling her "Ebenezer Scrooge".
    Think about it! Ebony, Ebony-zer, Ebenezer! (Sorry, i's kinda cheesy! [​IMG])
    If you don't know, Ebenezer Scrooge is from a movie. He is a grumpy old man who hates Christmas and likes to say "Ba Humbug!".
    This is what he looked like in an animated movie. (Be careful! I put it in link form because it's kinda creepy, so be ready before you click on the link! [​IMG])

    But anyway, back to my little Ebony. I had so much fun with the name, I made up a quote to go with it! And then, I edited a pic of Ebony. Enjoy! [​IMG]

    Well, My Rhode Island Red's name is BettyCrockadoodledoo. Betty for short, her name is derived from the non-existent woman on the Betty Crocker cook books. I named her when I was 10, and I was REALLY into cooking. I still love to cook now though. Betty and her sister Marquita are both going on 5 years old, and they sure look like old ladies. Betty is on the left. [​IMG]

    That Ebony probably won't even give you Christmas off from cleaning the coop!

    And Betty and her friend look just like two old gals gossiping away. [​IMG]

    Quote:Yeah, her and sister are SUPER close to each other. I don't recall them ever getting into fights because of the pecking order. When they are out foraging when I let them out, they are always side by side. I think they show true chicken love for each other. I can't really believe that they are so old now. This year of molting was one of the ugliest for Marquita.
