Talked with my Creek Elder friend and he sees no problem having a little naming ceremony with some sage and prayers. I would like to run it by one more Elder.

If the weather is good Saturday the 11th we'll probably do it that evening, or Sunday the 12th. By then all of their feathers will be in and it will be time for them to venture out.

It's comforting to know they will be hanging around for a while afterwards, maybe all year.
