Garignak, the Pet of the Day
Name: Garignak
Age: One year old
Gender: Female
Kind: Barred Rock Hen
Home: Washington, USA
   Garignak the Chicken is very special to me because, along with my other chickens, reminds me of each summer spent with newborn chicks. You may be wondering why and how Garignak acquired her unique name. She is named after a rock monster in the film "Galaxy Quest." According to this movie, Garignak means rock. When Garignak was a chick, she was always the most sturdy and strong in the entire brood.

    This picture depicts her, during her first winter, sitting on her nest and fluffing her feathers. She, along with other close members in her flock often come and visit me while I am riding my horse. They are very friendly chickens, as they have been handled from hatching.

    Garignak's personality is relatively affectionate, as long as she is not sitting on a nest. She does not know any tricks, but will come to her name when called by someone she knows. She is a very curious bird, which separates her from the other chickens immensely. When other chickens will run away, she will often stay to inspect the problem! My sister and I have always known she is special, and we plan to enter her in a fair next fall!
