Three chicks will be arriving Thursday at Egg Plant. One will be a buff orpington, one silver laced wyandotte and one araucana. I'm thinking of naming this batch after NPR correspondents -- Nina Totenberg, Sylvia Pogiolli and Soraya Sarhaddi Nelson. But of course, I have to meet them in person to see if the names fit.
I've put together flash cards for my husband so that he knows which chicken is which. He never refers to them. If I give them these full names, he might just check out all together.
