    We like to come up with themed names or unique names that fit the chicken's personality or whatever.

    BLRW flock: Alfredo (roo), Marsala, Rosemary, Florentine; extra roos: Curry & Cordon
    past names: Kabob, Teriyaki, & Dumplin'

    Marans flock: BC (roo came to us as "Big Comb" + he's a blue copper), Buffy & Willow
    past names: Cordy, Anya, Faith & Angel

    Ameraucana (splashes): Sterling & Silver (roos), Powder, Puff, Marley, Carrara, & Opal
    Ameraucana (wheaten): Amaretto & Butter"Scotch" (roos), Buttercup, Sandy, Carmela (chick)
    Ameraucana (black): Cricket

    SLW: Larry (was supposed to be Lacey) and Agnes (for AG = silver)
    upcoming pullets: Lacey, Monica, Rachel, Phoebe, & Janice and I'm stealing somebody's Cruella & DeVil (thanks! [​IMG])

    Delaware hens: Odessa & Laurel (city/town in Delaware)

    I have tons more, but some particular funny/unique ones are:
    Crusty ~ he was all "crusty" from a busted yolk when he hatched
    EB ~ for Elizabeth Blackwell because she lost an eye due to injury
    Pie ~ for chicken pot pie
    Noodle ~ for chicken noodle soup
    Rotten ~ for a spoiled rotten roo we had
    Dizzy ~ because she always ran around in circles as a chick
    Saki ~ a rumpless (by accident); means rare or unique
    Chatty & Gabby ~ our very talkative EE hens

    Have a bunch more chicks coming up, so thanks for all the great name ideas you guys have posted!!

    Lots of hens with no names waiting to make sure they are hens. We bought 14 from a private seller and 11 were roosters. We have alot of roosters to give away! Can't decide who goes yet except for Whodat, he definately stays.

    We have for the cockerels: Rooney (Plymouth Rock), Cocky Locky (Buff Brahma Bantam), Mr. FluffyPants (White Cochin), Fireball (Partridge Rock), and Snowball (White Silkie)

    For the pullets (not all are named! Too many look identical!): Baby (both Buff Orpingtons... my little grandson named them), Shelly (Black Australorp), Bea (Queen of the Coop... a Plymouth Rock), Little Red (Rhode Island Red), and Henny Penny (Buff Brahma Bantam).

    We still have 2 Rhode Island Reds, 2 Plymouth Rocks, 1 Black Australorp, and 3 New Hampshire Reds that need naming. I've been waiting for their personalities and some type of distinguishing features to come out to help us differentiate between them all!

    Well since you asked! ...and you get as a FREE BONUS the method to the madness behind those names!
    1. Brahma - "CHICKEN SOX"
    If you can't figure why that's so D_ _ _ funny, you've never seen a Brahma! 'Nough said!
    2. Brahma- "CHEE-TOES"
    She's the color of the Cheetos Leopard, and her toes are orange.
    3. Welsummer- "SAINT MARGARET"
    Sibling, "POPE EGGS BENEDICT XVII"
    went back to the "I wasn't suppose to be a cockerel" store. I traded for a less catholic pullet. More of a "lay" member of the church.
    4&5 Andalusians- "THE SISTERS FUGLY"
    aka: THING 1 and THING 2. They remind me of the seagulls in Finding Nemo.................
    "Mine, mine,mine,mine,mine,mine,mine,mine,mine,....."
    6. Speckled Sussux- "THE BABE" (pullet I received at the "I wasn't suppose to be a cockerel" store. I call her THE BABE, because just like Babe Ruth, I made the greatest trade in history! And I don't care who 'ya are, that thar' is funny...real funny...I'm still laughin' cause that thar' is still funny.
    Yup, those are my chicken names.
    NEXT QUESTION.
