Winner winner this chicken’s not for dinner!


Not yet anyway.

When I was in college I had a friend in art school whose parents owned a farm.  He used to put pictures of the cow in the freezer on the front of the fridge.  He had a grill out.  I ate “Satan”.  Yeah, I did.  Apparently that cow was mean, hence the name.  Anyway.  I’ll try not to let that happen to our chickens.

That’s right, our chickens.

Now that you guys are naming one, I feel that co-ownership is really the only option.

I’ll send you a bill for her feed, mmmm K?

So I know you’re all wondering . . . who won the great chicken naming contest of 2013?

Dun dun duuuuuuuuuuuuuuun.  Check out the video below.  If for some reason it doesn’t publish for you, you can see it directly on YouTube Here.



I swear it was NOT rigged.  Although purely by accident there was only one gold Easter egg in the drum.  So maybe it stuck out enough for The Pete to snag it first.  In the interest of fairness and my guilty though I’m not actually guilty conscience, I’ve decided to let you guys name the other two unnamed chickens as well.


I told you this contest was great!

Stop back tomorrow to see who won that privilege and to find out what our first winner named his chicken!  It’s a good one.  Once the second batch of winners have been revealed and they have picked their names, I’ll post that too.  So it’s going to be a chicken filled week around here.

While we are talking about chickens . . .

Eggs RW

Yup.  Somebody in that coop is finally earning their keep.

Don’t get too excited, it’s not any of your chickens, they’re too young to be laying yet.

These are going to be this morning’s breakfast.  My gentleman farmer husband is beyond excited.

See ya tomorrow.

Question of the Day:  Okay spill, what’s your chicken name?  Perhaps somebody will need a middle name . . . 


  1. I accept this honor on behalf of all chicken namers who never get any awards. They toil in anonymity and their efforts go unsung. I’ll spend the prize money on a relaxing vacation, perhaps a cruise. There is prize money involved isn’t there?

  2. I liked “Mistress Billington,” as my chicken name because she was a pilgrim, and this is a Plymouth Rock chicken. But I know the FIL will do the little clucker proud with an awesome name. And I want to see yummy egg pics – congrats!
