Here’s a question for you.
What do a tribe of bored kids do on a rainy day after recently getting 3 new pairs of adorable chicks?
The answer is they name them of course.
And if you have a pair of chicks then naturally, you need to come up with a “paired name”. You know, something like Peanut Butter AND Jelly.
Although a few of our older chicks had received names, most notably Carter, Miley, and Squishee. The only reason they got named was because you could tell them apart from the other all solid brown birds. None of those plain Janes got any names.
But look where it got them, Carter, Miley, and Squishee, all turned out to be roosters and they all will end up going ‘back to the farm.” Perhaps a name is not such a good thing.
Never the less, thanks in part to the rain, this new batch of chicks is being christened and here is the great name unfurling.
The two Appenzeller Spitzhaubens are from now on going to be known as Simon AND Garfunkle. (This is obviously a nod to mom as I’ve been making the kids listen to The Best of CD ever since I found it at a yard sale)
The two Light Brahmas will from here on in be referred to as Tom AND Jerry. (Cartoon Network is just never far away from our lives.)
And the Mille Fleur d’Uncles, the ones destined to be the most colorful will now be called Currier AND Ives.
I’m not sure it’s going to be all that important telling which of the pair is which, just as long as they stay alive to be the two halves to the whole.
