When we first built the coop and the run, we had lots of girls - 10 in total. Now almost seven years on, we have two left - Barry and River Song. The others were all named by the children and were JoJo (after DSs favourite programme at the time, JoJo's Circus), Tess and Angel (my Bluebells), Rose Tyler, Amelia Pond, Hinge and Bracket (Rhode Islands) and Penny.

Thinking of re-stocking in the spring.

The 3 we adopted form school after they'd hatched in DS2's classroom are now Sam, Jess and Ali, named after his teachers - Samantha, Jessica and Alison! The kids have no idea but I enjoyed watch him telling his teacher their names very seriously :D

I'm clearly lacking in imagination as mine are collectively called "chickens".

Talking of gay cockerels, we had a transgender chick that posed as a female for almost a year before we realised she was a he !

Matilda, Lydia (named after one of DS' best friends who moved away), Hazel, Rose and Ruby (named after DHs grandmother).

currently we have
Fenny (Fennimore B Buttercrunch, was in a picture book we had)
Ginny (Weasley- she's ginger)
Thing 1 (surviving silkie, sibling to Thing 2 from the Cat in the Hat)
Dot (survivor from a pair of Dot and Ethel from EastEnders)
and new- Artemis (Fowl, obvs)- and Roxy (Black Rock)

in the past we have had
Billa, Tikka, Masala and Fluff
Betty the Bastard (ancona bantam and very dominant)
Guinness (black and white Polish)
Bella (the Belgian bantam)
Tahini (cream legbar)

interesting how often Tikka is used!
I love chicken names!

Did you really have a gay cockerel? because we thought we had a transgendered hen1

I posted to this thread back in October. I have Betty, Doris and Wattles (used to be Edith). Finally I am able to tell the three of them apart too!

Previous ones have been Blackie, Goldie, Bluey, Fuji, Tinky Winky (gay cockerel) and George.

This is a great thread. Some of the names are soooo cool!
When I first started I had Queenie, duchess and lady. Lady turned out to be a boy so was called doodle do. Sadly doodle and Queenie are no longer with us neither is Mable sad . we now have dutchess, glinder the good, elpheba, buffy the cockerel (buff in col our), Pru and red. We still have three to name.

Ethel, Nancy and Peggy were our first three, and they were joined by Agnes, Phyllis and Doris - and all lost to Mr Fox earlier this year.

Our new hens are Ada, Iris, Jessie, Mabel and Winnie. The RIR chicks don't have names because we can't tell which are boys and girls yet. They are just referred to by the colour ring on their leg, as in "Yellow has got out of the bloody run again!"

When I was growing up we had some Light Sussexs called Korma, Madras, Kiev and Vindaloo.

Not looking forward to when DD is old enough to have input into the names of future chickens.
