I bought my first brood of day-old chicks at the end of April 2009 (7 of them) and then started another brood at the end of May (5 more). I've since gotten a few more and have 16 all together. I have 2 roosters and 13 hens currently and am hatching some chicks.
My kids have named a few of my girls and I have named a few more. I am still working on names for them, though.
My flock includes:
3 "Araucanas"/EE (2 pullets, 1 roo) - My roo is named "Gallo" and my original araucana girl's name is "Candy." The newest is "Sarah Connor" (Transformers) cause my son thought "araucana" sounded like "sarah connor"
3 Wyandottes (1 silver-laced & 1 gold-laced-pullets, 1 buff roo.) - My silver-laced is "Belle" and is my personal pet/favorite She's turning out to be a lap chicken. The gold-laced is "Sansa" and the buff (roo) is "Pikachu"
2 black sex-links - "Danaerys," "Cinderella," (Dany and Cindy) and "Eva," RIP was a 3rd but the dogs got into our chicken pen
1 red sex-link - "Noodle"
2 barred rocks - "Snowflake" and "Arya"
1 australorp - "woody" (my son thought she looked like a woodpecker)
1 blue orpington - "Gilly"
2 Rhode Island Reds - "Rosie" and "Ruthie"

So far, Snowflake seems to be my head "hen" with Danaerys in second place. They're still quite young, though, so we'll see if the top of the pecking order changes any.
