And the winner is...

Well, the naming of our roosters is official.  With five votes, the names Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley overwhelmed the other three options and won their rightful place as belonging to our two roosters.  Though my choice did not win, I certainly cannot say that I am unhappy with the results.  :)

I want to say thank you to all those who participated in our little poll!  We sure had fun.

A Naming Dilemma (in which we ask a favor)

These are our two roosters.  I would introduce them to you, except that they don't have names yet.  And that's a problem, at least in my mind.  Names are very important to me and they always have been, even when their owners are only chickens (or stuffed animals).  So, we need your help on this one.  You see, we were trying to name them today and were having a bit of trouble.  Each member of the family put out their suggestion, but we couldn't make up our minds.

Isaac's suggestion:  Luther and Calvin  (My immediate reaction to this one was, "Oh, please no."  Isaac, however, loves the idea.)
My suggestion:  Tertius and Felix  (Names from the Bible)
Dad's suggestion:  Tony and Ray  (You can really only understand this one if you watch a show by Living Waters called On the Box, which we love.)
Mom's suggestion:  Mr. Darcy and Mr. Bingley  (If you know my mom, her suggestion doesn't surprise you a bit.)

After a bit of discussion, Isaac said, "I know!  Kiah, you put a poll on your blog and let your readers decide."  So that's what I'm doing.  And now, if you would please vote on the poll to the right we would all be very indebted to you.  We are placing the (oh so important!) decision of naming our roosters in your hands.  None of us will vote, and we will name the roosters whichever set of names you choose.  So, dear readers, please vote!  Right now!
