The Girls: A Friendly Little Contest

Originally uploaded by Sheepish.
So, here we are in the racially segregated south (of France). Seriously, look closely at the chickens. There are three black and three red, and they are separated by that patch of green like they're ready for a street brawl. *Dim lights; fade in music from West Side Story.* I think the black one up front has a switchblade stuck up under her right wing. Seriously, though, they are frequently separated by color like this. I wonder if one group talks $%@& about the other. Can't we all just get along?!

Anyway, now to why we're really here. The contest. So, these are the new girls. We're hoping to keep them all around for a while (not let them get consumed by predatory animals like the last group). In the spirit of growing attached to them, therefor forcing us to become better caretakers, I think we should name them (something we never did with the last bunch). So, the contest is this...

If you can think of a good name for each of the chickens or a name for the group of them (maybe the two groups separately, now that we see how they are - Crips and Bloods, you say?), please contribute your ideas in the comment section below. I'll send some nice French goodies to the person who comes up with the most fun names (non-knitters are welcome to play along, since the goodies won't be knitting related).

Have fun with it!
