Yes.  That's the nickname.  Have you ever read any of Bailey White's short
stories?  She used to read some of them on NPR.  Anyway, they are just
great.  You would love them.

You know what? Three of those chickens just jump in my hands now when I
open it up to feed and change water. The yellow one practically tries to
fly out of there and land on me. WOW. Amazing what chickens are like
when
you handle them all the time. I'm gonna have several "Cool Chickens!"
(for
those on the list that don't know - Cool Chicken was a Rhode Island Red
chicken that I used to have that would sit on your lap and eat fritos
and
follow you everywhere. She was WAY cool)
