Naming the Bird Herd....

Now for the naming of our new bird herd....


There are 3 hens needing names. Two are road island reds. One is a black australorp (we think)

One of the RIRs has a flopped over comb. The other RIR has a nice stout comb that stands straight up. This is the only thing that we have been able to use as a distinguishing mark between the two.

The black hen looks like a crow and I was almost convinced she was except that she is very talkative and has convinced me she's a chicken.

So to get on with the winners.

Livvy for submitting Ruby....will be the name of one of the RIRs

Julia for submitting the idea to name it after a characteristic....Flippy Flopper will be the name of the other RIR. And...

Tori for submitting Mrs. Cluckers....The black hen has certainly earned the name.

If the winner's will submit their e-mail addresses to our blog email ahthelife@gmail.com they will each receive an ebook copy of "How To Be Beautiful and other stories," a story of a young lady that struggles to find the secret hidden in the gospel of Christ. The book dates back to 1827 (or so) I found H2BB in an antique book store in Enterprise Oregon 3 years ago.

Thanks all for the entries...They are on our animal name list in the event that in future more animals come to live on the farm....

Good names, all. I'm sure the feathered ladies will do well with them. Amusing that book came from Enterprise..... I've only ever met one person before who even knew it exists. He is a professional photographer who lives and works there. Judging from his local scenic work (postcards and his prize winning large prints) it's a beautiful part of the state.
