    I like Peri a lot, not sure I've met Polly.
    Victoria has made my short list.

    As far as old. . . I named the hen Susan lol. The ORIGINAL companion!

    @ginster , have you met the new Doctor? She's brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.
    I have added Yaz to my list of potential names for the babies! 20181009_125047.jpg My cat is named Grace, otherwise that would be there too.

    7 eggs today! So either one of the Wyandottes left, and Susan, or Susan is already laying and I have 2 Wyandottes left to start! I can't catch anyone in the act to know for sure.

    A week (or maybe less?!) until my new chicks arrive so I have a partial list of names ready to go!
    (I also have the lamp set up, feeder and waterer disinfected, and am getting chick feed from the store tomorrow!)
    From Classic Who:
    Victoria
    Zoe
    Polly
    Dodo
    Ace

    From New Who
    Yazmin
    Amy
    Rose
    I've already used most of the New Who names, those are all that's left!

    Whenever I get new chickies, I always use magic water for the first couple of weeks. 3tsp of ACV per gallon of water, and a bit of honey. Some people add a dash of garlic. I learned this from my great grandma, and I rarely lose chicks now. Do you ferment feed?
