When we received our batch of hens last year, we got a surprise rooster. His breed is a black Australorp. He's a calm, easy-going rooster, polite to the hens and us farmers. He and our other rooster, Muttons, get along well (most of the time), hence why we have kept him to watch over the flock. However, this guy needs a name. So, we're opening a contest to name this handsome fellow.
Comment on this post or send us an email with your name entry. Make sure your name is present in your comment or email and that the email subject line refers to the contest. One entry per person. The contest closes at 12am on April 1st. At that point, Joannee and I will judge the entries and decide on a winner by April 2nd. The winner will receive a dozen eggs and a bag of greens, as well as an opportunity to have a picture taken with the rooster that will then be posted on Facebook and our website.
So, let's hear some fun, creative names!
