    So, I have seen wonderful terms of endearments on BYC that oozes love for each person's girls.

    I was just wondering what word or term of love you use when talking about your girls...?

    List them away because I would love to see what you call your girls....

    Does it HAVE to be the girls???
    My cockbirds and cockerels bring me more joy than the hens. I call them my "handsomes".

    I call mine kippies most of the time. This is a Dutch not existing word. Me and my flock are mainly Dutch. So this fits quit wel.

    Chickens = kippen. So kippies is something like chickies. ;).

    If they don't listen I call them other names. Like stonme trutten (stupid cows). And if they behave a bit strange I call them tuthola"s. There is no translation for the word tuthola. But you can use it for a young girl/woman who makes a fuss about dressing nicely and spending time on make-up.

    I call them lil' freaks and my babies. Lil' freaks cause they will eat anything and can find me anywhere even if I don't call them, they see me or hear me walking. I am chased down the driveway and they are very fast. They also walk between my feet like cats and stand on my feet :love
