Claiming and naming
Brian met the Golden Girls for the first time yesterday afternoon, and immediately latched on to the Easter Egger. He wanted to name her Morgan – after his favorite who died. I encouraged him to give this one her own special name, so he decided on Goldilocks. I like it! I didn't like his choices for the Buffs, so I helped a little there; they are now christened Gilda and Brassy (the latter has the bigger comb). Brian graciously said they could be mine. :-)
And look at yesterday's haul (minus one I picked up later)! The upper left egg was in the pullet's "protective custody" pen . . . maybe the other girls were inspired to keep up appearances?
