On May 18, members of the Candler Park neighborhood and the greater community gathered at Mulberry Fields to win a chance at naming the chickens. Participants purchased raffle tickets to have a chance of naming one of the 10 new chickens recently added to the rebuilt coop at Mulberry Fields. All raffle proceeds are being used for the renovation of the children’s play area at Mulberry Fields.
And the names are (drumroll) Flapjack, Kristen, Fuzzy, Sylvia, Lazer, Gregory Peck, Cheetah, Cakey Pancake, and finally, Daenarys, Corn Fed, of the House Mulberry, First of her Name, the Unfried, Queen of the Goats & Hens, Khaleesi of the Great Cornfields, Hatcher of Eggs, Mother of Chickens.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Name that Chicken raffle and who attended our event. We invite everyone to come see the new chickens. Mulberry Fields Garden is open every day during daylight hours and is located down the alley at 1301 Iverson Street, Atlanta, GA 30307. Children love the tree swing and visiting with the goats and chickens.
