    La Fleche....'the Devil's Chicken' or so my poultry handbook tells me.

    Actually, one of five, he is very sweet if a bit nervous.

    At just 5 weeks of age, he (and I'm pretty sure it is a he), has the most impressive comb.

    [​IMG].

    Now, I have thought of the usual....Lucifer, Nick, Damien......but I'd welcome for something more original.

    It looks like I have three cockerels to 2 pullets, so a few names would be good. The girls....well I've come up with the usual Cruella and Morticia, but they don't sound so good, either.

    Come on folks....help me out.

    From Wikipedia

    Old Scratch or Mr. Scratch is a folk name for The Devil in the local legends of New England and pre-Civil War America

    So I suggest Scratch. It's also what chickens do.

    While descriptions of Gorgons vary across Greek literature, the term commonly refers to any of three sisters who had hair of living, venomous snakes, and a horrifying visage that turned those who beheld it to stone. Traditionally, while two of the Gorgons were immortal, Stheno and Euryale, their sister Medusa was not, and was slain by the mythical hero Perseus.

    Good luck on the pronunciation.

    Crikey....some WONDERFUL names . Already plenty of choice.

    The girls look pretty similar, but much smaller 'horns'

    When grown the 'horn' comb is pretty impressive in size in the males.

    If I were going with the Vampire names I'd use Lastat, Bianca, Claudia, Estelle & Madeline. Of course I also like Sybill ... and if another one ended up being a Roo, Santiago would be my choice :)

    Now I want more chicks so I can name them after Vampires...lol

    Let us know what you decide!

    I believe Diablo is the Spanish name for Devil.

    a few I can already rule out as I have chickens or sheep already with those names.......Mort (NN roo...he came aged 6 weeks and Mort was chosen as it could be either Mortimer or Morticia), Jessie/Jesse, as we have a Jezobel we call Jessie, Claudia (ram called Claude),and plenty of other silly names.....Blackchops, Twp (Welsh for stupid),Scragbag, oh, and Jared the dog (named by my daughter after Jared Leto....definitely not a dog!).

    I am definitely liking these names, though.
