new chicks

We've done it again.  We had been toying with the idea of adding a few more chicks to our flock and today we went out to just take a look and perhaps decide on the breeds for a new pair.  Somehow we went from "window shopping" to purchasing and came home with a trio instead.  
Since there are three, we all have the opportunity to name one.  I've already decided the Americauna will be Persophone.  Naiya's chicken will once more be the biggest, feathery-footed girl.  She's a Cochin of some kind and so far the name choices are Sunflower, Jelly Bean and Sprudel.  We'll see where we are with naming in a week or so.  Ryan is also taking his time creating a moniker for the Black Australorp.  She's the big chick in the pictures and we're guessing she's at least two days older than the others.  Hopefully it's not just that she's a he.  We're loving them already and are planning to make a greater effort to handle them in order to generate an even friendlier covey this time around.
