Roosters and Chicken Names

The chickens are growing up.  I haven't been rushing to name them, but a few have characteristics that brought names to mind.

Like Phyllis (Diller):



And Prudence, the Plymouth Rock hen.  She's super friendly and inquisitive.


With her rooster, Calvin.


This Andalusian rooster looks very regal to me:  Lord Byron.  Or maybe Darth Vader.  Brett thinks he looks evil.



Yes, we have two roosters.  They can stay as long as they behave.  They both started crowing a couple days ago so they are definitely roosters.

And of course, there is Cleo, the beautiful Aracauna.  We're looking forward to her blue-green eggs.
