Why James Brown? Aside from the fact I cracked up right away, we have a tradition in the aviary of totally inappropriate names. (and now the squab has a theme song!) Like the rooster's name is Elle, and the all black chicken is named Star. There used to be a chicken named Axie. Jon's favorite was Mod Squab, but that is hard for me to say,as I see that b flipping back and forth into a d. Same with Squabble, I mean I'd go back and forth rhyming with scrabble or sounding like squab. And then I start to feel like Donald Duck.

I loved these entries. Noel Coward the squab, how funny! Squabiscuit! Actually I'm cracking up all over again looking through this list. Thanks, all. And Marilyn, send me your address so I can mail the grand prize. (funonmars(at)earthlink.net)

Good choice! I, too, was just cracking up uncontrollably last night over this list of names. My friends couldn't understand why I was checking the Web on my iPhone to see what had been added to the list. I just couldn't stop laughing. What good fun!

James Brown is alive and well!
Maybe someone should sew him a little cape?

I can't believe Namowal didn't win.
FOR ONCE.

yeah we need to get Namowal over to Pioneer Woman, to win some of those hefty gift cards.

And Namowal, yes I thought about a little cape.
