Chicken names?

    tazcat70 I must be crazy!

    I thought it would be interesting to see what some of the names of your chickens are. We have Sugar, Cinnamon, Grey, and Red. We have 3 that don't have names yet so.....

    What did you name your chicken?

    If you want include a picture or a story how they got that name.

    I have a OEGB roo about 12 weeks old.
    We call him 'Solo'
    I gave a friend 6 eggs to incubate along with his many buff and quail eggs. This little fellow was the only one to hatch out of all the eggs. The friend brought him back to me because he didn't want just one odd colored one.
    It was fine with me because I love chickens.

    Here's solo

    I'll post some more with stories a little later!!

    all the chickens I have had in the past year, in the order of which I have had them:
    Fajita - banty cochin
    Peepers - banty cochin ROO
    Isabella - EE
    Penelope - banty cochin ROO
    Gordita - EE
    Lenore - Cuckoo Marans, hers is the only one that has a story behind it, penelope, my beloved roo, looked like a raven as a baby, so that made me think of the edgar allen poe poem "the raven"

    *the ones bolded are the ones we still have

    I started out with Fajita, then came Peepers. Peepers was a mean rooster, so I went back, to get Fajita a girlfriend. I got Isabella, but she was so large and weak, and sad, I returned her. I got Penelope, who ended up being a rooster. With 2 roosters, one was sweet and one was mean, so I exchanged Peepers for Gordita. Eventually I had to get rid of Penelope, I guess I didn't think out the whole crowing situation. I went on an order with a woman in washington, from mypetchicken, and got Lenore, my cuckoo marans.

    I have 15 total.....13 BO pullets. One is Carmella and the other one that sleeps on my lap is Henny Penny. The rest my husband said that I should not name them. The little cockerel is Caesar and the Buff Rock roo is Gumbo because if he is mean to my kids, he is going to be gumbo. [​IMG]
