I name my favorite hens after friends of mine. Commonly, the hens seem to take on traits that remind me of the ladies they're named after, and I like to tease my friends. One hides her eggs, one "talks" a lot, etc. etc. Well, one of my most-favored hens recently began consistently laying double-yolked eggs. At about the same time, the friend who she's named after got a long-sought book deal! I'm thinking of naming one after myself next time.
