The Beatles' Chicks Reside in Joe's Garage

We've named the chicks! We're crossing our fingers that these little ones are all hens and that Marek's STAYS AWAY! Our new little fuzzballs came from My Pet Chicken - they sex chicks (with a 90% accuracy rate), and we vaccinated all four for the dreaded and fatal Marek's disease.

We love them!

All of them received female names of characters in Beatles' songs. 

Our little yellow one is named Lucy (or Lucy-Poo after her whole poo situation) from Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.

Our little Barred Rock is named Sadie from the song Sexy Sadie. She's very spunky, so we figured . . .

Sexy  Sadie
Our very sweet dark brown one is named Prudence from the song Dear Prudence. The lyrics remind us of her too:
"Dear Prudence, won't you come out to play
Dear Prudence, greet the brand new day
The sun is up, the sky is blue
It's beautiful and so are you
Dear Prudence won't you come out to play"
Sweet, sweet Prudence
 And finally, "Andy's chicken" - Rita. She is so pretty and very affectionate. Her name comes from the song Lovely Rita.  "Nothing can come between us, When it gets dark I tow your heart away." Sweet.

Lovely Rita
