Following the trend of the last 4 years of my life, I can now add the sentence, “I own six chickens” to the list of things I thought I would never say.
There are six of us in our family, so we each picked a chicken and a name.
The parent’s chickens~
Stevie belongs to my hubby. A fan of all things Apple. So, naturally she is named after the late Steve Jobs.
Princess Consuela belongs to me. I have seen every episode ever made of Friends. I find it to be the best show ever. So, upon the recommendation of my niece, Princess Consuela it is.

Both of our chickens are Silkie Chickens, like Tori Spelling’s chicken, Cocoa. If you are unfamiliar, please google. These “chickens” are “exotic” chickens the Chicken Store people told us. I think they are a cross between a poodle and a chicken. Whatever the case, stinking adorable. Black and white for us. Romantic, eh?
The kid’s chickens~
Cameron’s chicken is named Diver. This kid LOVES him some ocean. Appropriately named. Very clever.
Taylor’s chicken is named Iris. She LOVES her some astronomy. Iris is named after the Iris Nebula.
…and may I just say now that I love those two kids.
*Diver is camera shy
Emma’s chicken is named Lola. You know why? “Because it is a cute name”. Good reason. Great reason.
Greyson’s chicken is named Emily because he loves Thomas the Train and since we have girls we had to name it after the girl train, Emily. Makes sense right?
In several weeks these girls will move into their chicken coop Home Sweet Home.
In several months we shall be eating their eggs for breakfast.
Thanks in advance, girls.
