Stats: We got 4 because we couldn't decide on names so everyone was assigned a chicken to name and "take care of," mainly consisting of being it's #1 cuddle partner so that they become very tame. Amazingly enough there was no squabbling about what person would get which chicken, we all got our first choice chicken.
Ox chose the Rhode Island Red and named her Amelia Pond after Amelia Pond (duh) in Doctor Who, a redhead. She might be his first celebrity crush.
Little Frog chose the Buff Orpington and originally named her Princess Sparkle Rainbow Heart Star but then we started reading the Little House picture books and she decided on Jack.
Mastermind got the Barred Rock, which he named Nugget. Nugget came a week later than our other girls so she's a bit smaller.
I got the Ameraucana and after MUCH deliberation, named her Sharona. Yes, My Sharona.
I've taken as many pictures of our girls as I did when our babies were first born; chickens are incredibly photogenic. Here are a few of my favorites:
