Anniversary Contest

Editing for more information at the bottom.

I am a sockateer. What that means is, I go up to BMFA™ approximately every other month to help bundle, label, fill sheet protectors with patterns and generally have a great time with the shipping of the Rockin' Sock Club™. As part of this job, I have to be very careful what I say and when I say it away from the job. I can't let out the secrets. Because folks have been getting their packages, it's ok now. Another part of my job, is to attend Camp Cockamamie this year. I don't know exactly what I will be doing, but it should be a fun time!! However, I need to come up with a chicken name. Something catchy, something sassy maybe? I don't know, I'm having a hard time trying to come up with this chicken name. Here are the ones that are taken, Hen-Pecked, Hurricane and Etta, which is short for Henrietta.

These are the ones I have come up with so far, only by searching online for chicken names or famous chickens.

Miss Prissy from Foghorn Leghorn Looney Tunes™
Little Red (Hen)
Chicken of Bristol (Monty Python)
Babs or Ginger (Chicken Run)

So come up with some catchy chicken names and leave them in the comments section with a way to contact you. The prize is 2 of the older (original) skeins of STR in Rocky Horror. I think they feel like lightweight and they are 200 yds each. Rocky Horror makes great Halloween colors or great OSU Beaver colors. The other item is a Blue Boo. Sometimes mistakes happen in the dye process, this is one of them. I think the colors are really cool though. This is a worsted weight, 560 yds or 8 oz, and the colors are pink, light green, blue and yellow. Very pastel like. If these colors aren't to your liking, I do have some other of the sock yarn in the old colors of green and blue, but I didn't take pictures of them.

The contest is open until Tuesday, March 6, 6:00 pm. I am not sure how I will choose, but it will probably involve names in a felted bag. Hmm, can I turn this into a school lesson?

Oh, one more thing, if you are overseas or outside of the USA, please play along!!

Edited section:

This name is to be used by me as a "camp counselor" name. Like summer camp. And I think because of trademark issues I shouldn't use the name Rockin' Sock in it.

Should I be the first chicken name provider?

When I grew up I had a 'personal chicken',named Berta, I could carry her around and put her in my 'Puppenwagen' (a carrier with wheels you put the 'baby'in and can go for a walk).

Berta chick was so cool and layd back, she never ever pecked me.

Her rooster was a total different story.

Famous chickens? There's a french chanson about Chanticleer and Pertelotte. Or how about Penny? (as in Henny Penny) Dolly Parton?(large, plump breasts) Chick Corea? (Jazz musician) Rhode Island Red?

Are you naming the chicken in the poster? Because that one sure looks like a rooster, not a hen.

My family had barred rocks when I was a teenager. I was thinking Barred Rockin' Sock would be pretty cool. There is also Chicken Licken for the list of famous chickens. Good luck with your name choice.

'Mother Hen' is good for a counsellor. 'Chick Chick Chicken' is from a song.

Chicka-Bea (with the "bea" part almost pronounced b-a-y) - from the movie "Nell" - Jodie Foster would "sing" Chicka-bea when she was thinking about her lost twin!

I have friends that I call Chicka-bea often in a very loving sing-songy kinda' voice!!

Hmmm - might make a good name color for a STR yarn!!

BTW - found your blog googling rockin' sock club 2007 spoilers - hope my package is on the porch when I get home today!!

What about Big Red, or Chicken Little? Or Chook? (Do you use chook over there? It's aussie slang for chicken, also a term of endearment "How are you, chook?")
I'll keep thinking :)

Bah, that anonymous was me!

How about Stretch, like Garfield's rubber chicken?

Okay, maybe I just have a weird sense of humour.
