    On the Sept hatch along thread we discovered many people had birds named Ethel,

    Now we want to know if you do?

    Or If you plan too, Maybe we can make Ethel the number one name for a bird in 2015




    BTW I have an Ethel, my mommy turkey hen.. She just looked like an Ethel when I named her...

    I have a 3 yr old Dominique hen named Ethel... we had a Lucy that we lost a while back. Ethel is a sweetheart and Lucy was a pistol!

    No they were way before the Mertz couple. They were married in 9/6/1905 in Albany Maine. They were Fred and Ethel Towne

    Meet Ethel! Hatched today at Day 20 of incubation. (RIR x CCL, so EE)
    She's a bit of an overachiever. She pipped and zipped in under 3 hours and now has a lonely wait for playmates.
