    I have a pullet that is about 4 months old. She has a cross beak and is always the first one to greet me (looking for something to eat). We feed her wet food and separate her twice a day so she can get her fill. I have 14 other hens and haven't named the others. Since she's singled out I thought it would be nice for her to have a name since my husband and I discuss her needs almost daily. Her breed is Ameraucana/Araucana? Not sure.

    I was thinking of a sweet kind of name since she's more of a pet than anything to be considered to end up on the diner table.

    I'd call her Chris or Chrissy (short for Criss Cross).
