The New Hens Are Here…they need names!

We have two NEW HENS! Our original hens are in retirement, which means we have two new members of our school community living in the hen hut.

They are missing the most important thing: A NAME EACH!

Place your name suggestions for each hen in a comment below. There’s a star up for grabs if your suggestion is chosen.

To help, take a look at the hens. What colour are they? What’s each hen’s personality like? What name would suit them?picture3

Also, your class has it’s timetable to stick to; please ensure you do and that our hens are well-looked after, healthy and happy!

EVERY DAY, WE MUST:

  • Collect the eggs and hand them over to the kitchen for a ‘cracking’ lunch.
  • Give them some food – A mix of Layers Pellets & Corn is perfect
  • Top up water – hens really do drink a LOT of water! This is especially important if it very cold (frozen water can’t be drunk) or if its very hot!
  • Check the run to make sure nothing has been trying to dig in
  • Make sure you still have the right number of chickens!

EVERY WEEK, WE MUST:

  • Remove Dropping Tray
  • Put droppings  into compost or bin
  • Clean out nesting box
  • Put clean shaving into box and dropping tray
  • Clean Glug

AND AS A SPECIAL MEASURE, CHECK FOR:

  • Limps
  • Injuries
  • Changes in behaviour
  • Mites

    These are some names I have come up with. there is one nae that stood out for me and has always kept me laughing (I think you all know which one it is!)! It’s good how we have new hens! Thank you Neeve for giving each class a time table!

  2. I think as this is the year to imagine and invent they should be called imagination and invention. They could maybe also be called Roald and Dahl as we focused on Roald Dahl. As Hope said as well feather and cluckington.

  3. If the hens are girls, the names I would use are: Jenny, Heniffer, peckidiliia, Clucker, Clover and Flur. If the hens were a boy, I would name the hens: Ferry, Fudge, Augie, Harold and Plop.

  4. My names for the chickens are Princess Layer, Chewpecker, Kylo Hen, Hen Solo. And that’s it for hope I win the names will be EPIC AWESOME GLORIOUS!!!!!!!!!!
