    My kids named our, some from shows ( Gloria from Happy Feet and Ming Ming from a Nicleodeon show ) the rest are Ivana, Lacey ( a silver laced ) Princess Maudlyn ( sp? ) Maude was our extra chick and she was weak and small, so my eldest son said Maudlyn means emotionally weak, so she's Maude.

    Naming my chickens was hard. Some names just came to me b/c of their personalities, and others went without names for weeks. I named the runt "Chicken Little" b/c she was she smallest, and I named my golden EE "Frida" b/c I thought her feathers were really pretty & reminded me of a Frida Kahlo painting. I think you have to get to know their personality & they will just kind of name themselves [​IMG]

    ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm........................................guys, names. Sorry but we were talking about names and now were talking about wonder pets. Never mind, I hate telling people stuff like that cause I'm afraid people will get mad at me or get upset. It's alright I'll just look at the names on google or even watch their personalities.
