    I have six chickens currently, we tried to name some of them after the royal family and then gave up half way through.

    2 Gold Laced Wyandotte: Margo and Fat Liz
    2 Speckled Sussex: Camilla and Olga (Olly for short)
    1 Frizzle: The Spanish Lady or Frizz Frazz - because with the black feathers and red wattles she looks spanish (cue flermenco dancing)
    1 Silkie: Abbi

    Hello by the way, my first post here on BYC =).

    I named:
    Black Betty- (big fat) Black Copper Marans
    Large Marge- EE
    Paris- (Statuesque) Dominique
    Doll Face- EE (has markings like eyelashes, pale cheek puffs and the sweetest personality)
    Hermione Free Ranger- EE (very curious and smart, first to do/try everything)
    Halfpint-EE (runt of flock)

    These were named by my 10 and 12 year old sons:
    Kili and Fili- Black Copper and Golden Cukoo Marans
    Hawkeye-EE (weird that she was named as a chick yet grew into a bullying hen whose head looks just like a bird of prey!)
    Blackbeard-EE (complete with a huge black feather beard)

    Who knew keeping chickens would be so much fun?
