    Congrats on the new additions.
    Like you, I had names all picked out before my chicks arrived. The chickens however had other ideas.
    Once they arrived and started growing, their personalities and quirks dictated name changes. Thus, Isis became Jezebel and Aurora became Pale Face. Only one hen, Lilith and the roosters Thor and Zeus kept their original names.
    Enjoy your chicks! [​IMG]
