Name That Chicken Contest


There's been an interesting turn of events here during Chicken Watch 2008. The little guy in front here, the last one to hatch, surprised us with his near sparkly silver-blue color. His brothers and sisters are black and gray, just like good Barred Rocks are supposed to look. We're not sure if he's just "special" or if maybe his momma, Lexi, was steppin' out on Ol' Hawkeye. Either way, he needs a name. That's where you come in.

Over the next twenty four hours we need you to put on your thinkin' caps and come up with something suitable for such a fine looking young rooster. We're a low-budget operation here so there won't be any fancy prizes or big checks in the mail, but you will get to put your stamp on a small part of poultry history. How cool is that?! Aren't you excited?

So go forth and come up with something brilliant!!

Oh, and please don't forget to sign your name. You know, so we can jot it down in our chicken naming hall of fame.

That is a pretty color! I haven't seen a chicken like that before.

Name him "Wolf", because that is what the coloring looks like. :)

Stormy, like grey clouds.

I love Chicken Watch 2008, you should go on www.cafepress.com and have a T-shirt made.

As for names, how about...
-FLINT (like the rock)
-PUDDLE (just sounded cute)
-MOONSTRUCK
-TURTLEDOVE (funny-neither a turtle or a dove)
-QUICKSILVER
-DRIZZLE

How about Sterling? I don't think I've ever seen a chicken or rooster that color before either!

The Silver Pullet (take off of the classic Rolls Royce)

I've loved reading your blog and seeing your chickens hatch. They are beauties.

How about "Zorro", "Bandit" or "Casanova". He looks like a ladies man.

Since his Dad is Hawkeye, it should be Pierce, or Alan, or BJ or even Frank...................Charles Emerson Winchester is probably too long:)

Turns out the classic rolls was called a Gray Ghost. DH pointed out Bob Seger had the Silver Bullet band, so how about Bob. Or I think Stephen King did a story called The Silver Bullet. Is it a scary rooster?
