Feathered Lady Update

Good Morning all!  I thought I would quick share some pictures of the girls and how they are growing.  I have named quite a few of them and have some other names picked out but am waiting for some changes in some of their looks and personalities so I can tell them apart.
 This is Florence (Flo).  She is becoming quite the pet of the group.  If I squat down and talk to them when I let them out into their pen for the day she comes and visits me before starting her foraging.
Millie and Tillie.  Millie is almost as tame as Florence, Tillie not so much.  I call them the twins because they always stick together.  Millie likes a little petting but Tillie does not tolerate it.
Esther.  I named her first because there is only one black chick and I could tell her apart from the other chicks.  You would think since she has had a name for so long she would be friendly.  But no she is quite the snob.
Dorothy (Dottie).  Dottie is quite the brute.  She comes out of the hen house in a snoot every morning chasing all the other chicks around the yard.  Actually, I was telling Jayme at http://talefromthecoopkeeper.blogspot.com/  about Dottie's attitude and she suggested maybe Dottie could be a Fred.  Humm.  Hubs has been trying to name all my chickens Fred there may be one yet.
This is another chicken that is the same breed as Dottie, no name yet, they look a lot different.
Mary, Ethel and Helen.  One day I will determine who is who.  There are a couple of red hens and one more like Dottie that I have not named yet.  I am leaning toward Garnet and Lucy for the red hens but I am really somewhat stumped on Dottie's other two sisters. That is what is going on in the hen house.  If you have been following the feathered ladies lives I will try and give you an update every few weeks.  Thanks for stopping by!  Blessings!

Ohmygoodness, they are so delightful! I love that Dottie! LOL - little hellion she is. Beautiful birds - looks like you are tending them well. Great names! I know you'll enjoy them for a long, long time.

LOL about naming all of those chicks! I tend to agree with Jayme. I'll bet Dottie is a Fred. I had a bunny once that was Beatrice, but HE was re-named Benjamin in a few short months!

Love the bag. I have so many unfinished projects. After I finish my afghan that I just started, that I LOVE by the way, I am starting on all of my UFO's. I can't take it anymore.
