There's been some interest in the fact that one of our new hens is called Valkyrie. I kind of wondered about that myself! But here's the story of how our hens are named...
The boys and I get to take it in turns to name them, based on characters in books we've been reading. Thus we have:
Artemis Fowl series:
Percy Jackson's fellow half-blood heroes:
Skulduggery Pleasant books:
And here's Valkyrie, on the mend now,
She's named after a character in Henderson's Boys, who isn't featured in any fan fiction pictures:
But for me, she'll always be the hero-hen that gets the better of the fox every time:
I must admit, I think it's rather stunning to have so many heroes tucked away in our hen houses tonight...
