Chicken snuggle time

The girls:
One Rhode Island Red,
One Buff Orpington,
One wild mixed daughter of a loose fighting cock named Margaret,
Three fabulous, fun, feathered friends.
The weather has been below freezing and at night the girls keep all snuggled, close, keeping warm with the big Buff closest to the frigid edges of the coop every time.
Well the weather turned warm for the last few days and the girls spread out, about a foot apart at night, they look at me a bit perplexed about this 35 degree temperature change when I close them up.
Tonight, however, they were all snuggled up again even though it was pleasant and warm (64 degrees).
2 eggs.
I need to name the other two.
Margaret and the Red are my layers right now.
I think the Buff is still using her energy to grow.
ChicKong ? Poultrysaurus Rex ?
She is a sweetheart tho. She needs a nice name.
The Red follows me EVERYWHERE ! Including into my coop ! She has no qualms about strolling through the house to see what we are all doing in OUR coop!
