When do you name your chickens? - Page 2

post #11 of 12
We chose name right away but didnt assign who was who until those first few "iffy" days are behind us. I wanted to try to lessen the blow to my kids should THEIR chosen name was the one who passed. I realie anything could happen at any time but thats just what we did

Also, sorry to hear about your duckling.  :hugs

Thanks for the kind words. I don't have ducks anymore as the entire 'Lower 40' is on a hill so finding a place for a good pool isn't worth the effort IMO. I'm hoping I get a good variety in egg colors,that's one of the main reasons I'm getting Americanas this time, instead of more Australorps. That and the friendliness. Of the Aussies I have now I got a flighty hen and rooster that I think may be a black Australorp (all were bought from a mixed box straight run), a nice hen and one very mean rooster which I'm trying to find someone to - *ahem* - 'dress' for the table.
