Names for Some New Kids
Foster baby broiler roo has chosen the name “Toro!” He is a strong baby broiler roo and it is a fitting name. I imagine his voice if he spoke English would be something like Antonio Banderas. “I am strong roo! My name, it is Toro!” He is doing well for a broiler chicken, and enjoys his days with his turkey buddy.
Speaking of turkey, she hasn’t chosen a name yet. I don’t even know if she’s a she. I don’t know enough about turkeys to tell if it’s a boy or a girl. That makes it hard to tell if a name is going to be a good fit.
So foster kid turkey came with me to the vet for a quick blood draw so we can find out if she’s a boy or girl. Sorry turkey… I know being wrapped like a burrito isn’t very fun, but it was only one minute. Turkey got some peas as a treat and was just fine with the car ride. Turkey is super sweet and very affectionate and personable. Plus, turkeys make more interesting noises than ducks or chickens, so it sounds like they’re better conversationalists. We should have the gender results in 10 days and then give turkey a proper name.
Lastly, the other new rescue, who is a permanent resident, chose her name yesterday. She would like to be called “Cindy Buttons.” She is doing great and is slowly working her way into the flock. Janet still thinks she should be pecked to death, but even Carol is letting her roam the yard without too much harassment.
So that’s it! Two of the three new rescues have names. And turkey should find one soon, once we know if she’s a boy or girl. Have a great weekend and keep on quacking and clucking, or kerfuff-fuffing as turkeys do.
