    I read on here once about different names people had given to their chicks, and I thought I would share some of mine. I have :
    Franklin Delanore Roostervelt, Frank for short
    Eggbert
    Eggsmerelda
    Mrs. Eggelton
    Clementine
    Pretty Girl
    Splash
    Peaches
    Henrietta
    Doris
    Buffy
    Mrs. Buffington
    Black-eyed Susan
    The rest I just call chickie. They don't seem to have as much personality yet. But then they are only 4 weeks old.

    We have four people in our family, and five chicks.

    We each picked our "favorite" and named it. The white leghorn is a bit of a boss, so we decided she didn't need a special person.

    Ours are named:

    Ginger-- RIR
    Barred Rock-- Nia
    Nom-- black star
    Big Nom--black star
    Bossy B**ch-- white leghorn (we all just started calling her that... and it stuck)

    I have a bit of a hard time telling some of my hens apart, but I named them all bible names when I got them. I forgot all of them and they didn't really stick so right now I've got a few named and a few not.

    Buff Brahmas:
    Big Mamma (for whoever's feeling broody at the time or has got some chickies)
    Chickita Bonita
    Roo - Mohonri (isn't that someone's name on here? haha)

    Black Wyandottes:
    Roo - Alfalfa (he's got a stray feather [​IMG])
    Roo- Henry VIII
    Roo - Desperado
    Sadly, I have to execute the King and one of the others...[​IMG] i'll miss them.

    I do have more hens but they don't have names as of this moment.
