Three years ago, we picked up eight little chicks from a farm supply store. I had every intention of naming each of them. As chicks they were easier to tell apart, but as they grew their distinctions lessened. Truth be told, I couldn't tell them apart at all. So we fondly refered to them all as "the girls." Owning chickens has been a learning process for us, and overall we are thankful for having had the girls in our lives. They taught my children about reproduction and about the food we consume. They taught my husband and I that we are not and can never be farmers as we are much too soft hearted.
