Chickens finally all have names!!!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
So I'm still working on telling mine apart and feel bad that I can't buuuuuttttttt....

Finally finished naming them today!

Had 3 named and the other 5 not named because they looked the same and I just couldn't think of one but I finally named them today. Only been 18 weeks haha none of them had names until they moved outside (7 weeks) except for May.

The ones I had named already were the distinctive ones, our only Barred Rock is May, short for Mayflower since well, Plymouth Rock, not very creative at all but it's the first to pop into my head. my white (also black laced/pretty pattern) Easter Egger is Diva because she was taking a dust bath one time and flopped completely on her side (which a lot of them do for a moment) but then one by one everybody left and she stayed and was like that forever until finally one came and pecked her then walked/ran right over her as if to say COOOMEEE OOOONNNN ALREADY!! And she got up LOL sooo... she was being a diva. Bunny the tan/orangey and laced (but not as much as Diva) EE was named a couple weeks ago and it just sort of stuck. I didn't want it because it wasn't original but I couldn't think of anything so I just started calling her it.

Then the Buff Orpingtons I've been tossing around honey, sweetie, etc. For a while but didn't like them but today when I was sitting with them I randomly thought of 3 good names for birds and chose the bird to fit the name tongue.png I was going to name one of the Australorps Angel but they are mean sometimes lmfao and then it didn't fit with a BO but I liked Amber so changed it from Angel to Amber and the first 2 I thought of today stayed. So the BOs are now Penny, Honey, and Amber. And yes I went back to the Honey name hahah and call me mean but Penny took a dust bath or got splashed with mud or sap or SOMETHING weeks ago and is still kind of dirty on her back (I was hoping it would come off) so I went with Penny for her since pennies are more of a copper/dirtyish color instead of buff buff and she's dirty atm 😂😂😂 the other 2 have brown spots on their tails and I can tell them apart cause one has like 3 dots/lines on one tail feather and the other also has a brown feather but it's the whole feather and even a few feathers instead of dots on one. I'll get a picture. When they molt I won't be able to tell them apart anymore.

The Australorps I thought of Black Beauty but black is hardly a name so I thought of Blackie and they're hard to tell apart but one has a more "beautiful"/better formed tail and is Beauty tongue.png although, I really don't like those names so I'm going to have to think of something better.

I like all the other names though.

Sooo yeahhhh...

My babies finally have names!!

Unless anyone can thinkof better names for the Black Australorps.

Also they seem REALLY glad to finally have names. The Orpingtons are already curious when I say it and Penny looks up at me. They know I think. I think they're jealous everyone has a name but them.

I'll post pictures eventually.
