I’m Hannah, and these are my 8 gorgeous chickens:
The Black Rocks Brian and Shaniqua
These girls were named by our friend. We have a girl with quite a boy looking face so she has been nick-named Brian, her full official name is Briany though. The other Black Rock has been named Shaniqua because she is fierce like the female WWE wrestler! They have big dark brown speckled eggs.
The Mottled Leghorns Ginger and Babs
A group of chickens wouldn’t be complete without a few named after the chickens in “Chicken Run”! I thought that the Mottled Leghorns deserved these prestigious names as they have the personalities for Ginger and Babs. The larger and bossier girl will obviously be Ginger. The other one is a little more clumsy and dippy so I thought that she was a perfect Babs. Their eggs are the large, plain white ones.
The Warrens Blossom, Bubbles and Buttercup
We have three Warrens so we needed a famous trio to name them after. There was the an idea of naming them after the three good fairies from Sleeping Beauty, Flora, Fauna and Merryweather. However, this was just not good enough, so after a little more thinking I remembered one of my favourite shows from my childhood, the Powerpuff Girls and their names are chicken perfection! There is clearly leader and has darker tail feathers than the other girls so she is Blossom. There’s a girl who’s very airy-fairy and she’s a definite Bubbles. The last girl is very moody, she comes up to me clucking away and her feathers are quite darker than the other girls so she is Buttercup. These girls have only just started laying but their eggs are a nice pinkish colour and are plain.
The Araucana Snowflake
This is the only name that just happened at of chance. As she’s the only white chicken she just landed with the name Snowflake. A bit funny as she seems to be the most aggressive to have a very girly name. She produces small eggs that should be green but as she has only started laying they are still quite white. As you can see from the picture below, her eggs are a lot smaller than the other girls eggs.
