By any other name

No, neither of the little hens are named Juliet or Rose (although those are good names to consider for our next batch of chickens), but we have finally named the crazy buggers.

The first crazy bugger, and she is really crazy - screams like a girl if you try to pick her up and will unhesitantly peck your hand off, dh decided to call Attila. I said, "hey, that's great: Attila the Hen!"

The second hen, the kids were allowed to name, and ds#1 decided on Hypatia. I love the reference, but am not as crazy about the name for that hen. Still, it's only fair that the kids name one.

I'm reserving my name choice for one of our next hens. It's a punny one.
