We've got new babies.
Five of them.
We're all in love with them and can't stop watching them and saying 'ohhhhhhhhh....' and 'ahhhhhhhhh....' and 'they're soooooooooo cuuuuuuuute!'
Introducing the five littlest Fukases:
Their names are:
Shorey- Amy wanted to name one Shirley after a friend with blonde hair but I vetoed all names that belong to people we know after a horrible episode when a fox got into the hen house and Meg came screaming around the side of the house 'Mummy's dead! Mummy's dead!' So we have Shorey instead.
Miruko- Short for milk cocoa. Another Amy choice.
Satsuki- a Japanese word meaning May. Because they were born in May. Meg's choice.
Miho- named after Meg's BFF's cat. I can't decide whether naming a chick after a cat is a good idea or will lead to self loathing....
We ordered four chicks. When I went to pick them up we were given five. I pointed out the mistake and the woman in the office explained it was a freebee. A 'service' chick. Now I'm all for a giveaway but isn't it kind of irresponsible to giveaway live animals? What next- go in for an operation and get a bonus one for free?
So anyway, we are still trying to think of a name for our fifth surprise chick. In between ooohhhing and ahhhhhing at their cuteness!
And a bonus chick pic!
