a giveaway contest

9/26--THE CONTEST HAS NOW ENDED ~ THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED. I WILL BE BACK MONDAY WITH A WINNER :)
With 20+ chickens, not everyone gets a name--I could never remember or keep them all straight. But there are always a few birds with a unique look or character that we do name, like Rooster Mike and Miss Biddy, who sadly, due to an encounter with Mr Fox, are no longer with us...
So, it seems to me that our new rooster must have a name, but I just haven't come up with anything good...

And so this is the challenge ~ I would like to have a giveaway contest. The contest will be to 'name that rooster' ...
And just so you understand his character, I will try to describe him a bit::

::he is very busy, hardly ever standing still
::a little geeky and spastic, actually
::is very inquistive
::trys his hardest to to get to a worm or bug first, then a hen usually steals it away from him

If you would like to enter the contest, please leave a comment with your name idea by end of day Friday, 9/25. I will put all ideas up for a vote with the family and announce a winner on Monday, 9/28.

Oh, and the winner's prize is a copy of Blogging for Bliss...


Thanks for helping me out!

  1. "Kanye",after the "artist" Kanye West. Something about trying to get to the worm first, and the spastic part. It just suits.
    Have fun naming him!

  3. Walter.

    Soon as I saw him I thought of that name. Not sure why, as I don't know anyone or any characters named Walter for him to resemble. It just seems to fit.

  4. Ozzy Osbourne! No doubt about it!

  5. He looks like a "Ludwig" to me:>)

  7. What a beautiful bird, he looks like a Ferdinand to me.

    ReplyDelete
  8. He looks like a "Mr.Bo Diddley" to me Like he's got the soul and the groove deep down inside him and it's trying to come out but it don't quite connect..
    I enjoy your blog btw

  9. My husband says he looks like Rod Stewart

    ReplyDelete
  10. I know he is a he, but being black and white he reminds me of Cruella De Vil from 101 Dalmatians. Perhaps he could be called Crowella?!

  11. How about Napoleon? I don't know why but he reminds me of the movie Napoleon Dynamite... funny characters and odd movie!

    ReplyDelete
  12. What fun!! I first thought something of how he looks a little "Artsy-Fartsy"... don't know why really, it just looks like he could possess that sort of character.

    And, cool! I was just thinking about this book the other day - how that I would like to get myself a copy, sometime. Maybe, just maybe this will be my lucky (blessed) day.

    ReplyDelete
  13. "The Bird Formerly Known as Prince", funny seems lots of us thought of musician/performer types!

    ReplyDelete
  14. He looks like a Spike to me. I don't know why, but that's the first thing that came to mind. Or Cash or Clyde.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think by the way he seems to be dancing with that nifty footwork that Mr Bo Jangles suits him.

    ReplyDelete
  16. My very first thought after your description was Forest Gump ;-) But after looking at the third picture, with his wild haircut, I think he's Santana.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Reminds me of Elmer Fudd or Mr. Magoo. Completely lovable but totally miss understood. Dennis the Menace had occurred to me too. :)

    ReplyDelete
  18. He reminds me of Edward Scissorhands - remember that movie with Johnny Depp? That character was geeky and spastic, and they also have the same hairdo.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Stanley Zbornsk, after Dorothy's clueless yet loveable ex-husband on the beloved show Golden Girls.

    ReplyDelete
  20. When I saw that last picture with the feathers under his beak, the name that came to me was "Bandit". It reminded me of the mask that bandits wear.

    How about JayLeno...it rolls off the tongue pretty fast. He kinda looks like him. Or how about Mr. BUGZ. This is fun. Thanks for sharing.

  22. jagger. he's got that spastic scrawney rocker look.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I'm thinking he looks like . . . "WaterLoo Clyde"

    ReplyDelete
  24. I know he is a boy, but he sure it beautiful. With all those feathers in his hat and his fantastic fluff "Dame Edna" came to mind.......

    ReplyDelete
  25. Because he is inquisitive and a bit spastic and geeky and just misses getting the worm/bug, I think his name should be Barney Fife (from the Andy Griffith Show). I enjoy your blog very much! Thank you for sharing your amazing creativity and skill(s)!

    Your personality profile kicked out an old memory from the Archies...

    ReplyDelete
  27. He reminds me of Michael Jackson. I would call him Michael.

    ReplyDelete
  28. That hair and the strut just shout John Travolta in Grease to me! LOL So I think his name should be Zuko after 'Danny Zuko'

    ReplyDelete
  29. After seeing that last picture, it came to me, "Spaz!" This seems to fit him to a T.

    What a hilarious rooster. We got a good laugh out of this!

    ReplyDelete
  30. Mick...you know, Jagger.

    ReplyDelete
  31. I couldn't help but think of Liberace.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I like the name SCOUT from the movie To Kill a Mockingbird...Too bad He is not a She because he reminds me of Phyllis Diller!!!

    ReplyDelete
  33. please enter the name "Elton John"
    as suggested by my 9 year old son Douglas.

    thanks!

    Cool Rooster!

    ReplyDelete
  34. Deb, I suggest "Prince Albert". He looks a bit royal with that hairdo going on but by your description such as geeky, well Albert fits:-)

    ReplyDelete
  35. He should be named "Sharpton" :)
    Ingrid

    ReplyDelete
  36. All I can think of is "Barney Fife" How spastic was he????LOL!!!!!

    I had a hen just like him one time (the free gift from the hatchery) and I named her Phyllis after my childhood friends mother. She acted just like her. Very bossy and very nosy!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. My first thought - The Mad Hatter! Can't wait to hear what you choose! ~Adrienne~

    ReplyDelete
  38. Also I always loved the Andy Griffith episodes wher Barney would run his hands thru his hair when he was frustrated and it looked just like your roosters topknot!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  39. Oh Well I was interupted while writing my comment and Barney is already taken.....SORRY but it's still a good name!!

    ReplyDelete
  40. My first thought was "Spaz" but I see it's already been suggested. :) Cute rooster, btw.

    ReplyDelete
  41. What fun!
    I am not sure that this person would truly fit his personality, but the first name that came to mind is Albert...after Albert Einstein. He just looks like him to me...a genius in his own quiet way, a geek sometimes and such a surprise for all of us in terms of his quiet, albeit, unimaginable intelligence.

    ReplyDelete
  42. I think you should name him....bodacious. You could call him Bo if he insists on being trendy and having a nickname. With an attitude and a look like that, it certainly needs to be bold. Thanks for letting all of us join in on the fun of naming him. What a great prize you are giving away too!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Sheldon! The geeky and spastic qualities just have to be offset with frustrated high intellect.

    ReplyDelete
  44. I think "Punkydoodle". He's got that sort of "punk" look but his personality sounds a little bit "doodled"!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Elvis....he doesn't stand still! :D Too cute!

    Debbie

    ReplyDelete
  46. I think he looks like he struts like Mick Jagger. But don't enter me because I already have the book!

    Manuela

    ReplyDelete
  47. The Nutty Professor. That is my second choice, someone already took Liberace...which was my first choice!

    What a character!

    ReplyDelete
  48. Einstein was my first guess, but someone already took that name.
    My husband suggest Fred, or Shaggy. We are Scooby Doo lovers around here. :)
    Blessings,

  49. LOL, what a great idea. I have no name for your rooster, but I think he is just the cutest thing with his wild hair.

    Wait, I know....Sideshow Bob, that is who he reminds me of.

    God bless.

    ReplyDelete
  50. David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust comes to mind when I look at that fine rooster.

    ReplyDelete
  51. I say Jareth, that's the name of the goblin king in Labyrinth played by David Bowie. I SWEAR I didn't read the other messages before I thought of it, but it's funny that the last message mentions David Bowie. Weird.

    ReplyDelete
  52. looks like Mac from Chicken Run could be his mother. She would name him something sensible and refined such as "Walter." You have to say it with her inflection.

    ReplyDelete
  53. SPIKE :) Mr. Spike, the Rooster with spiky hair :)

    ReplyDelete
  54. It's already been suggested, but "Spike" is the first thing that popped into my head.

    After discussing him with my honey, we came up with Beaker (like from the Muppets) :)

    Have a great evening :)

    ReplyDelete
  56. G'day, I love animals with human names so I'm thinking "Bob".
    There's nothing like a spastic chook! Cheers

    ReplyDelete
  57. The first thing I thought of when I saw him was that Sargent Pepper would be a great name.

    Barbara

    ReplyDelete
  58. What a pleasantly quirky little guy this rooster is. I think "Mr. Doodle" suits him to a T - as in Cock-A-Doodle-Do! Whatever you name him, he'll be a wonderful addition to your family!

    ReplyDelete
  59. Maestro. He looks like a madman.... Isn't he too cute?

    ReplyDelete
  60. Rod Stewart!! That unique look, no doubt reminds me of him! Seems as though they may have the same energy level as well. That man never slows down!
    Oh, yes Rod Stewart!!

    ReplyDelete
  61. Oh, I love him! We have had chickens for years and I will always have them. I think he looks like a "Dandy"...likes himself as all roosters do, shows off for the girls and is an English gentleman all rolled up in one.

    ReplyDelete
  62. The minute I saw him I thought of the name "Frazzle" don't know why, but he just reminds me of that.. He is a cutie..

    ReplyDelete
  63. He looks like a "Frazzle" to me. He is a cutie.. definitely a Frazzle..

    ReplyDelete
  64. Sorry, Deb, I accidentally posted when I was editing our teen blog.. oops. Didn't know how to erase or that I had posted on it.. Sorry

    ReplyDelete
  65. Snerdly came immediately to mind. He is certainly a character!

    ReplyDelete
  66. He reminds me, both in character and looks, of Mr. Collins, from the BBC version of Pride and Prejudice with Colin Firth. Mr. Collins even wore his hair in the same style!

    "A giveaway contest" name that Rooster. I read quickly through your note, and I didn't notice it was a "he", but when I first saw the picture it looked like a big hat with feathers on a lady and I thought of Holly Dolly, from the movie. Even though your chicken is actually a Rooster, I think "Dolly" would be a fun name as he looks "all Doll'd up" :)

  68. He is just a riot!! My vote is for "Ed Grimly"

    ReplyDelete

  70. Cooper. After the rock legend Alice Cooper and the fact that he may spend some time 'cooped' up.

    His name is Mortimer.

    ReplyDelete
  75. "Paul Stanley" one of the Kiss band members. Originally I thought he looked like one of the other members but Paul Stanley just sounded like the right name for his personality.

    ReplyDelete
  76. Hi Deb,

    His mane reminds me of Phyllis Diller. He obviously can't be a Phyllis so I would call him Diller.

    I love your blog by the way - thank you for all the hard work that you put into it...much appreciated!

    best wishes
    Mary

    ReplyDelete
  77. I'm going to suggest Theophilus, Theo for short. And here's why:

    When I was a young lass, expecting our first child, dear husband suggested that name "because that is the-awfulest baby I've ever seen." Evidently, he'd heard that joke and just had to share it.

    I'm suggesting it as an endearing name, not a derision. :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. How about Beaker. He was a character from the muppets. He was the spastic and fumbling lab assistant to Dr. Bunson Honeydew.

    ReplyDelete
  79. He looks like a "Reggie" to me!!
    And that came to mind BEFORE I read the Jughead suggestion!! LOL!!!
    Cute rooster, by the way!!

  82. The Funky Geek.

    Is his breed meant to look like that? At least he'll be easy to find. So pleased he has a distinctive personality even if he lacks a little in brain power - the lad must be related to my daft Zebbycat

    ReplyDelete
  83. Hi Deb, Love your blog and visit daily, but don't comment much.
    He's a "handsome" fella, but given his personality, my family would dub him "DUFUS". Not sure if that's how it's spelled, but it sounds like "doofus".
    Neat contest!

    ReplyDelete
  84. I know he's a rooster but, all I think when I see him is "Phyllis Dillar."

  87. I think you should name him Edward, like Edward Scissorhands. The hair definitely fits and the traits seem to match, too.

    ReplyDelete
  88. How about Pivoting Pierre? He would be like a French version of Speedy Gonzales :)

  90. First of all, he is absolutely adorable! What a great hairdo. But anyway, I don't know if you watch the show The Big Bang Theory (which is not a scientific documentary, but a hilarious tv series starring a cast of geeks), but I think he looks like a Sheldon, which is the main character of the show. Can't wait to see what his name finally is!

    ReplyDelete
  91. If he was a girl I would say Phyliss Diller..But since it is a fella I say *Sir Top em Hat..*

    ReplyDelete
  97. It's Rod Stewart...I'm sure of it. I even did a google image search of the him. So, you could go with "Rodster the Rooster" or simply "Rod".

    ReplyDelete
  98. What a great contest Deb! He's adorable!!!

    I think he looks like the Rooster version of Jerry Lee Lewis - Jerry Lee Lewis with his hair all crazy while he's banging away on the piano that is!

    "Mister Jerry Lee Lewis the Spastic Rooster." That's my suggestion.

    ReplyDelete
  99. To be shortened, of course, to "Lewis" although secretly he thinks "Jerry Lee" is much cooler.

  115. I think he looks like a Reptar.

    ReplyDelete
  116. I really think Einstein would be appropriate. He's sweet and a bit of a nerd and he has the wild thing going on atop of his handsome head. You could call him Albert if Einstein was too heady. If he was my handsome pretty boy rooster it would definitely be Einstein. The eccentric scientist twist suits him.

    ReplyDelete
  117. there is no doubt about it, he is definately a
    "Ringo Starr"!!!
    it's quick & easy to say and fits him to a tee!

  118. okay...I have two names to offer up but technically they're the same person...either Uncle Jed or Buddy Ebson. Do you remember on the Beverly Hillbillies when Uncle Jed would dance that hoedown kinda, leg stomp dance. That's your rooster!

  119. How about Phil? I know that doesn't sound very creative. However, he looks just like Phyllis Diller!

    ReplyDelete
  120. We used to have a hen that looked just like your roo - we called her Phyllis Diller! I think I would name him 'Spike'.

    Also, a little like he should be Mr Deville, Cruella's husband.

  123. Hehe, first I saw him I thought he looks like that kiwi-bird.
    But then it hit me - he reminds me somehow... Michael Douglas! Sorry, I can't help it :DDD So could he be Douglas?
    Of course, thinking of your description of him, you could call him also Einstein....

  125. Beethoven! As in the classical composer, not the dog movie. After Beethoven had given several passionate performances, his hair was just like your rooster's top. We have a small sheep farm and I know what you mean about not everyone gets a name but some personalities just stand out and it's difficult to come up with a creative something. God bless! ~Lori

    Is he much of a fighter? How about "Cluck Norris" (Claw-ratay champion and star of Good Guys Wear Black Feathers)? Or is he more of a gentleman? Then I would go with "Cluck Gable" (from Gone with the Hen).

  143. King Victor would be my guess. He definately looks like royalty. Interesting rooster. I have never seen any like this guy.

  148. I know this is late, but I wanted
    to put my two cents in anyway.
    I like the name "Hairy." He reminds me of the show "Hair"

    the songs playing in my head now.

    Thanks in advance.

  158. He looks like a Dr. Seuss character! How about Fizza-ma-wizza-ma-dill the biggest bird in the world from "If I Ran the Zoo." Of course, you could call him Fizzie for short!!

    Is he much of a fighter? How about "Cluck Norris" (Claw-ratay champion and star of Good Guys Wear Black Feathers)? Or is he more of a gentleman? Then I would go with "Cluck Gable" (from Gone with the Hen).

  161. Deb:
    Love your blog and the waffle dishcloth!!

    How about Checkered Flag for a name since the rooster is black and white?

  164. I would name him "Bill" after both Bill Gates (your description sounds much like what I have read of Mr. Software) and the song "won't you marry me, Bill?" since I am sure he is quite popular with the "ladies!:

  167. Hehe, first I saw him I thought he looks like that kiwi-bird.
    But then it hit me - he reminds me somehow... Michael Douglas! Sorry, I can't help it :DDD So could he be Douglas?
    Of course, thinking of your description of him, you could call him also Einstein....

  168. I think he looks like Gelman, the producer from the Regis and Kelly show.
    Also, a little like he should be Mr Deville, Cruella's husband.

  169. We used to have a hen that looked just like your roo - we called her Phyllis Diller! I think I would name him 'Spike'.

    Funny, I just did a chicken post on my blog too!http://tenthingsfarm.blogspot.com/2009/09/nadine.html

  170. How about Phil? I know that doesn't sound very creative. However, he looks just like Phyllis Diller!

  171. okay...I have two names to offer up but technically they're the same person...either Uncle Jed or Buddy Ebson. Do you remember on the Beverly Hillbillies when Uncle Jed would dance that hoedown kinda, leg stomp dance. That's your rooster!

    His mottled colors and pattern remind me of the diving bird known as the loon! And with his wild-looking head plummage...how about Mr. Loony-toon!
