    Hi! My name is Jonathan! I'm pretty young compared to most folks on this site and I live in Texas!
    This is my first out of, hopefully, many posts in this forum! And since this is my first post, I thought it should be an introduction post so people would know a little about myself.
    I got my first chicken a little less than 3 months ago. He was great to show off to all my friends because no one had ever seen a baby green chicken before! I got him from my Biology teacher in school for absolutely nothing and I gained so much knowledge and now I'm a chicken freak!
    Because he was a chicken that was dyed green, my teacher thought it would be a good idea to name him Kermit. So I did!
    Here's a picture of him whenever I first got him.

    As you can tell, he wasn't exactly a day old whenever I got him and he probably hatched around easter.
    I learned that chickens would be happier if there were more of them, so about 2-3 weeks ago, I got another baby chicken for him! She's awesome! Her name is Fran Stalinofskivitchdavitovichski. She followed him around 24/7 and they did everything together! I don't know what breed she is.

    , Kermit finally was able to jump high enough to jump over my fence... He jumped over my fence into my neighbor's yard and their dog killed him. [​IMG] I was planning on getting his wings clipped soon, I should have done it earlier... This was two days ago. July 7th.... I burried him early this morning.
    Anyways, I was really, really heart broken and my girlfriend decided to randomly pop by my house yesterday and surprise me with another chicken! It was one of the most generous things anyone had ever done for me.
    He is a blue wyandotte and he is yet to be named. They are both very close in age and they get along well.
    Here's a picture of my two chickens.

    Here's another picture of Kermit whenever he was still young. I think he looks awesome in this one.

    He grew to be the size of a Football(US).

    Other things besides chickens that I like are my PSP, programming video games, BMX, and being on the computer.

    Any cool ideas for chicken names are welcomed! I was thinking something like Giovanni or Depuety...

    So Glad you Joined!! [​IMG]

    You have some adorable Chicks! You already have some great names picked out, I think.

    I am so sorry about "Kermit" though. :eek: You will never forget him, I am sure. He is beautiful in those green feathers~~I bet not too many people have ever had a "green chick" before! [​IMG]
