New chicken mom-to-be from GA

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

Hi! Thanks to you delightful lot I'm getting my first batch of chicks (silver duckwing OEGB, if you're curious, from McMurray) this year after many years spent circling around the idea, then backing away slowly and fearfully. It's been a hilarious journey, and I wanted to thank you. And I had a question- has anyone else had this happen? My friends and family all want to help me name my chickens. They haven't even arrived yet!

Hi welcome-byc.gif

Glad you could join us here! How exciting for you to be getting your new chicks celebrate.gif I'm sure you are going to enjoy them very much. Raising them is such a fab experience and lots of fun too.
The learning centre has a fab section with some great on raising chicks if you have not already checked it out ~ http://www.backyardchickens.com/a/hatching-eggs-and-raising-chicks

When I have chicks hatch my son and his Dad do name some of them so it's not unheard off that everyone wants to pick a name. Chicks are something all the family can enjoy.

Good luck and enjoy BYC frow.gif

Hi and welcome to BYC. Sadly, my naming system is rather less imaginative or interesting - i use leg bands so, for example its "brown yellow, brown green etc) :)

 

If you check out the Learning Centre, you'll find a whole host of resources on all things chicken. 
 
 
Your state thread is worth joining as you will get to know other BYC members in your area (just type your state in the search box). In fact, the search box should become your best friend  Lastly but by no means least, the members here are amazing - very friendly and helpful, so if you need an answer to a question or simply want some reassurance that what you are doing is ok, then post away - we all help each other out here at BYC.
 
Good luck with your impending little ones!
 
All the best

I set fire to the rain! Watch it pour as I, touched your face. Well it burn while I cried, because I heard it screaming out your name. And I threw us into flames. I knew that was the last time, the last time...I set fire to the rain! -Adele

There's a lot of great peeps here! Feel free to ask lots of questions. But most of all, make yourself at home. I'm so glad you decided to join the BYC family. I look forward to seeing you around the run.
Did a moth know that the flame was going to change her life forever, or did she simply fly towards that heated embrace, knowing it would offer her something she couldn't give herself? In the end, the answer didn't really matter. The moth had never wanted the choice. -Joey W. Hill-

We named our chickens after some of our friends. Some were pleased and some, eh, not so much :D

 

Have fun with your flock!

Lots of folks seem to name chickens after TV or movie characters  - loads of  hens named   Sophia, Rose , Dorothy, and Blanche.  Laverne, Shirley,  etc. Also Disney princesses.
