Thank you to everyone who suggested a name for Hen, a.k.a. #77 (according to her leg band).
As in other competitions, such as the Booker or Giller, I have narrowed the field to a shortlist of worthy contenders.
(Insert drum roll or other auditory cue here).

Yolko (suggested by @Caryl Worden)
Eunice Dupree (by @Carole_Anne_Shaw)
Henelope (thanks to @Rachelle McComb)
It was nearly impossible to choose, but I assessed each name against the look, attitude and sound of my new hen.
As you can see, she has plenty of attitude that she’s not afraid to share.
She’s also extremely Hensome. (Thank you, Nancy, for that descriptor! And thank you Jennifer, primary custodian for the film footage and photographic portrait).
