    I know I'm asking for trouble with this thread, cuz you all have A LOT of chickens with names. So just give me the most interesting ones and their breeds. You can include pictures if you want.

    I had two RIR hens named Mary Kate & Ashley because they were interchangeable.

    I have a Lucy AND an Ethel. Both are SLW.

    I have an EE named Mr. Greenjeans who needs no explanation.

    I have a black feathered sex-link hen named Erica Estrada, and one with lots of red feathers named Stephanie Powers.

    I have a Turken named Padma Lakshmi after the host on Top Chef.

    I have a Cuckoo Marans named Jean-Robert and a Turken named Parvati, both Survivor references. Parvati is also Padma Lakshmi's middle name, strangely enough.

    Padma and Parvati are below:

    Mine don't have names yet. I can't tell them apart. They are just "girlie".
    How is Padma?

    I have one I call "Pammy" short for Pamela Lee Anderson. Got the name because when she comes running across the field from free ranging all day her crop is huge, hangs down between her legs, and sways from side to side as she runs. Only needs the BayWatch music playing in background.

    [​IMG] Good name choice! [​IMG]

    Padma is recovering quickly and currently hates living under the baby crib. I think I am going to get a dog kennel from my parents to house her in.

    Did you read that Parvati got ripped in the neck, too? She's also down in the basement in recovery. Hers is worse. [​IMG]

    YES to Top Chef! It is my DH's favorite show. I think Stephanie will win. She seems to have the most talent and focus. Who do you think? I hope not Lisa [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I've only got three [​IMG]

    my Cornish X ~ her name is actually Cutie Pie but we've called her "Chick-Chick" for so long, it's stuck [​IMG]

    one of the Brown twins ~ her name is Tallulah, after Maisy mouse's girlie chicken friend who's friendly and playful...the personality matches lol [​IMG]

    the other Brown twins ~ she was a little bigger, more round, and was/is more tentative and aloof...Sienna is about the shade her brown was at the time so I just picked that one and it sounds like it fits her personality [​IMG]

    I have been told that my Browns have stripper names [​IMG]

    My son has done most of the naming so far, we can't tell all of them apart.

    We have 2 Danish Brown Leghorns, Brownie & Brown Esther ( I need to post pics of Brownie who I fear may be a roo)

    2 Black Minorca's, the small one is Betty & larger one is Shadow.

    We can recognize 1 of the Buff Minorca's whose tail feathers have been slow to grow in due to pecking in the brooder...she's a Sally.

    Of the 3 Barred Holland's 1 is Speedy & the other 2 are Lovely.

    All 4 Ideal 236's (white leghorns) are Whitey [​IMG] The description when I ordered said they'd get black spots but none have them so far? I was hoping to use the spots to tell them apart.
