In Which Chicklets Cheer Up The Wordstress – And Another Fabulous Contest! April 17, 2009

Filed under: chickens,Contest — eastlakecounty @ 9:25 am

Two Buff Orpingtons and one Black Astrolorp. Cuter than words can say but I don’t have my camera with me so you’ll just have to use your imagination until this evening. My flock is back to an even dozen now. Try to contain yourselves.

I am listening to them peep-peep-peeping right now and am very grateful they are small chicks and not sandhill crane chicks.

Next contest? Names for my new girls. The prize? Um…oh, I know! I’ll pull one of the chairs out to the run and you can enjoy 60 minutes of complimentary Chicken TV.

    Sasha, Malea, and Michelle of course…..and ….hmmmmmm…..should it be Barack or Bo when you get the rooster?

    Two Buff Orpingtons should be Buffy and Oparh and one Black Astrolorp might be Astro. Not very original but easy to remember.

    I had already considered naming my chickens after the Obamas! Seriously, while I was brushing my teeth this morning. But since the Obama family has a bee hive and not a chicken coop, I’m going to name the first hive Barack, the second Michelle and then we’ll see what happens. I can’t imagine having more than two bee hives but who knows.

    Buffy and Oprah and Astro! That has potential. I was thinking Astro, Judy and Elroy, but Alex didn’t get the reference…she is entirely too wet behind the ears some days.

    And this reminds me that I haven’t put up any baby pictures yet so let me go get the camera.

    The astrolorp is several days older than the Buff Orps…and she is LOUD. She has a very insistent chirp. The little buffs hang out in the envelope box huddled up together to keep warm. I really don’t want to buy a heat lamp so I guess I’ll find a smaller box for them to sleep in and put them in the bedroom at night, just for the first week. I’d hate them to get chilled.
