Meet the Girls...


 Can one be considered a farmer is there are no chickens on the farm?
I didn't think so.
So, meet the newest girls here at Missing Goat.
All of six days old,.this is...
Haddie Doe.
Yes, you read that right - my wee girl of three got to name one..and that is the name she picked.
Now you know why I only let her name one.
She is a silver laced wyandotte


Here is Coco. 
She is a cuckoo maran - originating in France..so, coco it is.
If she is nuts, we'll go back to cuckoo.


My niece named this one Peep. 
Lets face it, Easter is coming, and she looks like a marshmallow peep.
She is a buff orphington.


This is my very pretty lady.  An Araucana.  She almost looks like an owl.
She is yet to be named, and I'm looking for ideas!!
Already declined:
Princess Snow White
Princess Belle
Princess Cinderella
Foofie, Woofie and
Haddie Boa - very similar to Haddie Doe.



This feisty little mama is Johnny Drama. 
I know, that is a boys name, but she reminds me of Johnny Drama from Entourage.
All puffed up and full of herself.
She is a dark brahma - thus the name drama.


   But really, she's not so tough. 

A happier girl, there could not be.

The little one that looks like an owl could be called Hoot.

They are all darling!

they are so cute!
the unnamed one needs some sort of elegant name, she seems so posh!

Oh my goodness - how adorable! I wish we had some!

Red Gate Farm said...

Our chickens will be 2 in just few days... I named all of mine too. I really wanted a lace variety like your silver laced wyandotte but we ended up not getting any. They are so pretty when fully grown!

And for a name for the owlish one, how about owl in french - chouette or perhaps another language?

Have fun with them!

I have a buff orphington too named Gracie who is the silliest and sweetest chicken I've ever known. You're going to have so much fun! Chickens are the best :)

Deb said...

They are just darling. So do they live a long time after they are finished laying eggs? I read that they lay for a few years and then that's it.

Simone said...

they are gorgeous!

Robin Larkspur said...

what wonderful names for adorable critters!! Definitely an owl-type name is needed for the unnamed one...how about Owltina?

Comeca Jones said...

We are getting 8 chicks on Sunday...we have a few names picked out...Mabel, Adele, & Gladys. The kids have come up with a few crazy ones too...we'll have to see when we actually get them if they fit their names.

Southern Lady said...

They are too cute! Carla

Vintage Home said...

You have the best animals & their names are amazing!
Great weekend to you!

Karen said...

The chick looks more a queen than a princess so how about Queenie?

Catherine said...

Well I just don't know which one is the cutest! And the happy little face in the last photo ~ adorable!!!

Ocean Breezes and Country Sneezes said...

So Adorable!! I was just showing my almost 3 year old daughter the pics and she's in love :-)

Lavender Cottage said...

All the chicks are so sweet. The one that looks like an owl could be called 'Hooty'

monkeemoomoo said...

To CUTE! Love the names:)

Strell said...

Adorable "chickets" as I love to call my canary chicks!!!! Hop-Sing is my name for the adorable baby, enjoy them, the grow quickly.....so cute.

Adorabubble!! Peep has the 'Blue Steel' look down-pat! Enjoy all the beauty Spring brings - we're going into our Fall here in Australia so a little envious!

kaye i. said...

Oh my! They're so cute! I suggest the name "Stella". I recently got a dress form and I named her Stella... why? Because I really like that name and I have to have a name for my dress form, if I have a beautiful chick I'd so name her Stella but I don't.

Heksedamen said...

call you nameless one AdoraBelle :)
My mum keeps buff orpingtons. They are amazing!!! :)

Kala said...

Adorable! So glad I found your blog, will be visiting often:)

kimberly said...

Have a wonderful Sunday and enjoy your new babies,
xx

My Little Bungalow said...

How about Aurie for the one yet to be named? They are all so precious, and the names are wonderful.

Diane said...

How about naming the one that looks like an owl "Hoot"?

I love your blog! Charming!

Nenaghgal said...

Just beautiful photographs of those adorable chicks - it reminds me of many moons ago, growing up in Connecticut- we actually ordered chicks through the post and when they arrived our old black labrador dog, lay in the grass on our back lawn and let them climb all over her - wish I had a bit more land here in Ireland to have chicks
Thanks for sharing

Natasha said...

I love it that you named your mama chick Johnny Drama! I love all your animals!

Hi,
I have raised chickens for the last ten years, this year, my son wants to get Indian Runner Ducks. Any wisdom, advice for me? I am hesitant to get ducks for some reason, (maybe because I don't have a water source for swimming)but I don't want to disappoint my son. Are they about the same amount of work as chickens? Do they make a lot of noise?

And I know just how you felt about finding your first egg. The best kind of surprise!
