Although the blog doesn't reflect it, we've been doing plenty of gardening around here, but right now the chicks are the focus of attention. I'll be updating the blog on our gardening exploits later this week, but today I need your help.
Our three little chicks are nameless and we need to give them names soon or else "yellow guy, black one and chipmunk" will stick. I know this because we had ducks in the past and after coming up with cute names for the first three, the latter six ended up with magnificent names like "big boy" and "little girl."
On to the names. I know I have some creative readers and I'm desperately in need of help. I have compiled a short list of names given to me by some friends and relatives, but I'd love to have a good list to go off. Aidan, my 5-year-old, would like Pokemon, Daphne and Velma after his two favorite Scooby Doo characters and one of his favorite cartoons. Jace, my three-year-old, likes to squeal and yell the word chicken over and over again, so he's not much help.
For inspiration, here are the girls. These photos were taken this morning on their first outing into the back yard.
Here is the little black one followed by a picture of what she should look like when she grows up.
Now we have our little yellow one, followed by a picture of what she should look like when she grows up.
Finally, we have our little chipmunk-colored one. We have no clue what she'll look like when she grows up, but she might look like the photo you see below - but this could vary quite a bit.
If you're willing to help come up with some name choices, please leave a comment. All three birds need a name so put your chicken-thinkin' caps on!! Thanks!!!
