Daddy Cletis, I named because he is very mellow and sweet, always made me think of a colorful old man with an old country name like, Cletis. Lucy the rescue chicken (passed now) I actually named her Luchia (loo-chi-a) when I rescued her off the road after she fell off a slaughter truck. She had beautiful baby blue eyes, a little beat up and bruised but had something in her eyes that said she needed to be loved. Hazel I named because she made me think what witch hazel would look like if it was an animal, a bit frazzled. LOL..Sadie I named because she seem sultry and always struts like a show girl with deep dark eyes. Maryanne I named because she is a petite little white chicken with bright orange eyes, with spunk and reminded me of Maryanne from Petticoat Junction on TV. Pearl I named because she was as white as a pearl. Opal Lu Lu because her ears looked like big pearls with Lu Lu for an island twist (?)..Madelyn is a white girl with an attitude and just seemed to fit the name. Sassafrass, because the name just fit, a little sassy and brassy. She is daughter of Wilbert and Madelyn. Wilbert was my big white flying roo who was klutzy when young but then acted more like Jerry Lee Louis so he was nick name Jerry Lee . Honey, one of the Light Brahmas, because she is so sweet and still comes up and is always asking ..what.?? for real,she always comes up and it sounds like she is saying what?? Dot Dot , one of the light Brahmas, had one single dot on the top of her head when she was a chick. Mini Moo is one of my little orange girls so it always made me think..mini..but she runs around like she is bigger than life, so I thoughtcow..Mini Moo. Nelly, aka Nells is one of my orange girls and she just reminded me of the girl Nelly on little house on the prairie. Rebaha..that face..the cheek puffs, the orange, the head puff and attitudewho else but Reba Mcentire.

Victoria..aka Vicky some how just acted like royalty so Queen Victoria came to mind. Sophie was proud and reminded me of Lynn Whitfield, who played in Sophie and the Moon Hanger. Blanche, well anyone who know the Golden Girls would not mistake her for any one but Blanche! Gertie 1 (passed) and Gertie 2 BB red Bantam. What else but a Gertrude would fit. Sootie, Jersey Giant, just looked like a little fluff ball that took a trip down a chimney with the little white diaper butt when she was a chick. Now Leon..she came to me via a friend whos kids brought her home from school as a day old chick. For a long time I was convinced it was going to be a roo but she was not..But hey Leon is a cool name for a girlPhoebe my gray girl that is suppose to be Sumatra, I rescued at my local flea market, some woman was going to buy her to eat.too beautiful for that, she is missing one toe. She rode on my lap all the way home, was very mistrusting but has eyes that look at you wanting to trust. So I thought of the older songs of Phoebe Snow and thought that, that name fit. It took a year before she really started trusting me, now she is a happy well adjusted girl. Foolzer because he hatched on April fools day and I figured what the heckthis chicken in going to fool me one way or another so I will just name him/her Foolzer. He is now a very active young roo. Yetta, BB red just because I like the name and it was Old English, but she really does seem like a Yetta girl should be, very prim and proper and thinks she has to be had fed separate from all the other chickens. Regis, BB Red just because if you have ever watched Regis and Kathy Lee on TV you would agree he is a Regis. Nigel because he made me think of the English actor David Niven, dont ask me how I got Nigel from that?? But it works and fits him to a T. Now for Gunta and AdolWell I was sure they were girls and named them Aida and Gytha, good proper Old English names. I even posted some pics when they were iddy biddy..but fooled me and now have matching bookend roos that I love to pieces!
Well you asked and I typed. I think that is everyone..LOL! But thanks for giving me the opportunity to brag on my yard crew.
edited because I keep saying was in stead of is..I still have all my clan unless it says passed..
