Chicken of the Week Part V

It's been a while since I've taken you down the coop,  I think a few of the girls are upset they don't have names yet! 
So lets get back to the game!  
A brief update for those of you that are new to the chicken game.
 This is not a giveaway, there is no prize money,  I just need help naming my chooks, if you have nothing better to do and want to play, it could be loads of fun!  All you have to do is 
 You might recognise this old lady from a recent post, she's a tad worried she might be headed to the boiling pot!  She was one of my first ever layers, she's seen a few girls come and go over the years, survived a couple of fox intrusions and has welcomed many a new bird into her coop, she's smart and she still holds a good spot on the roost. I don't know how productive she is in the egg department these days but she's certainly makes me laugh when she puts on her angry face!!
Then there is Cranky pants here who is just nasty! but she does make a really great mum. There is no chance of checking how many eggs she's sitting on when she goes broody, she's got a peck that would take off half your arm!! 
Last time round it turned out to be just one, My guess is she wouldn't let any of the others lay with her!
 Look at that face! What do you think she is thinking? Maybe you had an old School Mistress that stared down at you like this?
So whats your best OLD MAID names?  


  1. Agnes? Gertrude? Hilda? Apologies if these names are already taken by other chooks. :)

  2. Phyllis, Audrey ( I have a mean Audrey), Madge, Barb, Constance, Lucretia, and my grade one teacher, who was nasty as I remember, her name was Mrs Tipple.....heaven forbid if you called her Mrs Tickle by mistake, as we often did. Oh what about 'Valda...'.....

  3. Esme, Chookalina, Madame Cluck, Miss Gingernut,
    My two bobs worth.

  4. LOVE THEM!! Keep them coming...
    Ooh, I do like the sound of Mrs Tipple Suzanne... LOL!!

  5. Murgatroyd? Heavens to Murgatroyd - is that how you spell it - was that Snagglepuss? I suddenly feeling like I'm speaking Swahili.

  6. Ethel is that you?
    So many great names to choose from.
    Any more lambs yet???

  7. The first lady looks just like Flo who is our boss chook (same stare) but Cranky Pants definitely looks like an Ethel. I agree with Fiona.

  8. No more Lambs yet Fiona, it's exciting to wake up and check on the ewes every morning, disappointing no more have arrived yet!
    Ethel hey, One of my favourite names! I did actually name one of my new baby chicks Ethel but I have a sneaky suspicion she might just be a he...So Ethel may be in the running!!

  9. I just asked my husband "What's a good name for a cranky fat chook?" without so much as taking a breath or batting an eyelid he replied...Bertha...I know not where he got that from ???

  10. Biatress or how ever you spell it (pronounced BE-A-TRESS) for the brown one and perhaps Bettine or Bellamy?

  11. Have you read "James and the Giant Peach" by Roald Dahl? How about those two awfully strict aunts - Aunt Spiker and Aunt Sponge.

  12. She looks like a Mabel to me - Miss Mabel Ramsbottom.

  13. 1. Chicken Anne Dumpling - or just Anne or Annie for short.
    2. Chicken Maimie - for her ability to maim.

    Annie and Maimie
