My neighbor got me a white Silky assuring me it was a pullet...I named her "Oprah," in my warped sense of humor, because even white "chicks" can be named Oprah too! Then I found it was a rooster so a quick rewrite and his name became Opie. He had his girlfriends, "Mama1" and "Mama2" which were Bar Rocks and "Red" was a Rhode Island Red. I loved my chickens! When I moved from Maine to North Dakota they were integrated into my neighbor's flock where Opie came from. They are living happily ever after.....The End
