Not even close.
They are black and white speckled. And make strange teenage boy struggling with his voice dropping kind of gurgles as they are still in their adolescent years and can't decide whether to peep or berk berk berk.
So the names? Amy chose Lala. She has never seen Teletubbies so that's not it. It is the last in a long line of seriously puzzling names she has bestowed. We have teddy bears called Sharlie- not Charlie, Sharlie (a girl) and Luka (a boy- and nope, she hasn't seen ER either), Honey (named after my boss's mum) a beetle named after K- with the rather disrespectful kun tacked on for good measure) and there was a caterpillar called funny mummy but Meg accidentally stepped on it. Not sure what that's an omen of but it was a little disturbing.... So, yeah, a chook called Lala? None of us even batted an eyelid.
Lemon's name? Meg.
Poor Meg. She is still so desperate to have a puppy. She had it all worked out that she would just take her medicine all the time and then she could have a dog and still not get itchy. Unfortunately big bad mummy vetoed that idea. And so we have the next best thing. She named her chook after the neighbour's dog. The neighbour is tickled pink. Seriously, he called his wife out of the house to tell her the news. Lemon the dog is a pale yellow mini shiba dog. Much more lemony looking than it's namesake but that didn't worry Meg.
And that's the story of Lemon and Lala. With the new super cage I have high hopes of them being around long enough for me to tell which is which to boot!
