    You all were right. Lola is a Rooster. I originally posted this bird
    as a hen, telling everyone there was a green egg in the coupe.
    There was a green egg, and Goldie was also in the coupe and she is an Ameraucana Hen, but Goldie was laying soft shelled eggs, then she stopped laying all together, so I thought the egg belonged to the other bird...hen.

    So, Lola is no longer a Showgirl....and needs another name.
    He crowed today, 11-03-08.

    He is rather striking, I may have to keep him.

    Why not just keep calling him Lola, maybe it'll make him tougher??
    Besides he's used to his name and so is everyone else.
    We found out that our Sheila is a rooster and we're still calling him Sheila, I think the other roosters are teasing him though...[​IMG]

    The reverse is true also. My first hens, besides when I was a kid, were named Larry, Curley, and Moe. I'm sure anyone with chickens can figure out why. Larry was a particularly good layer, and never even knew that her name wasn't feminine.
