    We always name our hens after wonderful, deceased members of our families who kept hens through the years.

    Katie Mooney (my maternal grandmother)
    Mable Gronburg (my paternal grandmother)
    Susan Martin (friend of my grandmother's)
    Emma Glines (great grandmother)
    etc......

    My 12 year old son and I have a few suggestions for you:


    for your speckled ones: Spotty, PolkaDot, how about Chicken Pox?
    for your barred rock: Zebra, Stripey, Salt-n-Pepper
    for your new hampshire reds: Caramel, Butterscotch
    for your white rocks: Marshmallow, Snowball, Fluffball
