    Sort of Central Ohio
    We have a cockerel named Lemon Pepper because he had a nasty temperament when he was younger and we were sure he'd be culled and seasoned as such. That could certainly be for a pullets. I fancy others like Nugget, Noodles and Dumplings or Casserole. And I had a brown leghorn hen named Chicken Hawk.

    Hens go great with old-fashioned names. Ours are Dorothy, Sophia, Rose, Millie, and Lucille. We've had two Blanches and a Serra too.
