You may recall from a few weeks back that we've been planning to adopt my sister-in-law's chickens. Well, due to some unforeseen events involving coyotes and said chickens, the flock is down to one. Our one lonely girl arrived yesterday and is enjoying free reign of our backyard while we work on finishing her run.
The kids love the chicken. Einstein chases her around saying, "hey, little guy!" and "Mommy, she likes chicken food!"
The dogs think there is an intruder in the backyard that needs to be promptly dispatched. They are not enjoying sharing their yard-time. As soon as the chicken's run is finished, they'll be able to share yard space, but for now we have to keep them away from each other.
Now that we have our little hen, we need to come up with a name for her. Any suggestions? Should we go with a chicken-y name like Henny Penny? I kind of like Lola. We will be getting a new batch of chicks as soon as it warms up enough for them up here, so we may want to have matching names or a theme... what do you think?
