THANK YOU to everyone who joined in the spirit of fun by sending in names for the new chicks. Below are the chick pics along with their chosen names and an updated photo (not taken by Keith Skelton, so, please, excuse the inferior quality.)
A select group of judges voted on the chick names and the counts were tallied by Arthur Andersen and Company (well, they would have been if they were still in business). The first dozen eggs has been delivered to Leslie Westbrook as she submitted a page-length (yes, a page-length) email of potential names! Thank you, Tanta Leslie.
Other egg six-packs will be awarded to participants who either sent in a large number of names or whose names were used. If one of your suggested names has been omitted from the list, please know that your submission was appreciated but due to the arrival of a granddaughter and a puppy, things got a bit...shall we say, scattered. I had to scratch around to pull together the list.
So, with a large cluck and a great squawk of appreciation...
Here are the chicks...with updated photos, too!
P.S. Do you think I should be offended when one jokester replied to my original request saying, "Is this the time to say they look just like their mother?"
