There are two versions of the story.  Debbie M. remembers, “I just remember that someone made the comment that “we would follow you anywhere”…and jokingly someone else said “we do !!! follow you everywhere”….and you called us your little “chicks” and then in writing…you refer to us as “psychic chicks”.  Angela F. relayed this memory, “From what I remember, “psychic chickens” started as psychic chicas, then chicks, then chickies, now chickens. It’s a natural progression as we
grow into our own. Not to discount that some of us (ahem) are mother
hens at times.”
Really, I love both versions of the story so much that I declare them both to be true!
