The Beacon Hill Farm is now home to four new chicks. You know, lose one gain FOUR! The math gets better every time. Who are these new ladies??

  • Chick #1 – Blue Silkie
  • Chick # 2 – Golden Laced Wyandotte
  • Chick # 3 – Black Copper Maran
  • Chick # 4 – Barred Rock

We need some help naming the new girls (Hung’s Hen Harem) and I need some more blog and Etsy store traffic – so naturally we have going to a peep stakes! Not for cash, but some prizes and bragging rights.

Prizes – if you live locally, a dozen eggs and some honey. If you live afar, some honey and jar of plum butter – since I can mail without as much risk of incident.

Here’s how to win –

  1. Put on your thinking hats (round up your kiddos and co-workers too!
  2. From now until March 23th, comment on this blog post with your suggested names for each of the four girls. If a name is for a particular girl, just refer to her profile number.
    1. If you share this blog on your facebook page or sign up to follow, you get double stamps and your suggested name will fall into favor with the judges.
    2. Keep the names clean, not hurtful, stupid sh*ff will be deleted
    3. Examples: Little, Poopsy, Frieda, Lit, Imelda, Ann Wilson, Karen Carpenter, Basil, Parsnip, Nguyen, Virginia, Blue Devil, Zag, Clementine
  3. Suggested names will be posted on Odds and Hens Facebook page  for voting starting March 24th, running through March 31st. Winners will be announced thereafter.
  4. Don’t like to chance the odds, if you purchase at my Etsy store, you automatically get to name one chick, no voting required. Yes, I am that tricky.

You can review our current and past Creature names for perspective on this Farm Overview. Remember, this is just for fun, I make the rules (which I am sure violate others) and ultimately chose the winners. You benefit with eternal bragging rights, dibs on eggs and some honey to sweeten the deal.

The End!
