    Hello, I raised 8 assorted chickens from the egg and they lived on the side of my house, unfortunately, I also raised two labrador retrievers from birth and as I left early yesterday to go fishing, I mistakenly left the gate in the fence that seperates them slightly open. So when my family and friends got back from the fishing trip we all went in the backyard to prepare our freshly caught salmon and were greeted by two of the happiest dogs Ive ever seen and [​IMG] 7 dead chickens:( !!! There were feathers everywhere and it was a terrible sight. I thought the other hen had been killed somewhere else and we just couldnt find it, but to my surprise, later that day, our little barred rock pullet (3 months old) was sitting on the backyard fence by himself. I put the dogs inside, picked her up, brought her to his coop and gave her some corn. Now that she is very name-worthy, what should I name the sole-surviving devastated and lonely barred rock? Thanks for helping.

    Most definitely a female. How about KIMI: Algonquin name meaning secret since she'll never tell you how she survived.

    If only I knew some famous examples of sole survivors to suggest as names. Since she's brave(to return to the yard with the dogs out) and everyone thought she died somewhere unknown, perhaps Amelia(for the famous aviator Amelia Earhart who went missing) would be a good name!
