As a matter of fact I own two. Modern hybrid chickens are planned crosses, which are hardier and more productive than their parents' respective breeds. They grow faster and lay eggs earlier than heritage birds. They are also color sexable as chicks. In the case of the Golden Comet, cockerels are white and the pullets are more brownish red in color. Makes life way easier to know what your getting. No cross dressers in this crowd. One of Polly's babies is a Golden Comet hybrid.
We named her Prius.
Another hybrid cross is the Indian River. This is a cross between a purebred Delaware rooster over the pure New Hampshire hen. Sounds like a geography lesson doesn't it?
We wanted to give this one a hip and trendy name as well but we're stuck.
Since her BFF's are Polly and Prius it seems like this girl should also have a name starting with P. Only I actually drive a big honkin' SUV and I'm, uh, not really hip. Hey, how else am I supposed to haul sheep, hay bales and chicken feed around without an SUV? I was driving one of these long before it was fashionable and I will continue to drive it even though it's not cool. Er wait? Is cool still cool? Or should I say it's hot now? That's probably not it either. Luke warm maybe? Whatever, back to the name thing.
So I'm obviously not hip and I can't think of something modern or hip that starts with a P. Then I remembered that y'all are so smart and funny I really should ask you for advice. So what do you think?
