Round Two!!!!!!!

So, I went to Hot Springs, AR last weekend with Katherine Altobello and had a fabulous, fabulous time.

I left my chickens in the trusted care of my parents. I let them out of the coop Sat. morning and confirmed w/ my Pops that he would let them back in at dusk so that the chickens would be safe.

Well, he didn't.

Eleanor Roosevelt is dead. It was much more gruesome than the first chicken death. Literally half of her body was missing. And she was getting pretty big. Sad. and gross.

So, four chickens just aren't enough.



I GOT FOUR MORE TODAY AT THE FEED STORE.
I'M A MANIAC!


this is a rhode island red. (replacing dolly madison who Lucy murdered.....okay, dolly will never be replaced but....)
Name idea: Pat (Nixon)? Florence (Harding)?




Here is a little blonde buff orphington.
Name idea: Hillary




here is a little black star australorp chick.
Name idea: Barbara? (bush...I know...boo hiss) Eliza (Johnson)?

Somehow I deleted the fourth one's pic but she is black and white and I'm thinking of naming her Mary Todd. or Edith(Wilson) or Hannah (Van Buren)


Please leave name feedback.

J'adore Edith!

In the picture with Kat Altobello it looks like she has a sleeve tattoo. I thought, that's kinda weird -- she got her arm/shoulder completely covered with a tat! Hmmm...

I second the Julia (more so as in Sugarbaker, the first lady of decorating). I am so sorry for your losses as well. Maybe you should have a two week or so trial period before naming so it isn't as sad. Or name them all Barbara Bush for the first two weeks and let nature speak for itself, then name them for someone fabulous. just thinkin' out loud.
