I've got lots of chickens is one of the reasons.
Naming chickens helps when you need to discipline them. You know Bandit go to your roost right now and don't come down until I tell you!!!! Leopard if you don't lay an egg I'll cook you with some!!! You know stuff like that. Otherwise they all get shamed and you can't get your point across to them!!!
I am kidding by the way It is much easier to teach them sign language so you don't have to yell.
Welcome FizzyZow!!!!!! I am new at this stuff too!!!!

Soon to hatch this week...Mottled Javas
I must too be a grumpy bear. I don't name mine either.
That said, let's not call each other names just because we don't all see our birds as just pets, or just livestock.
And Fizzyzow, I do suggest looking into the search function some. In the past few days you have numerous threads on the similar topics.
Have fun, hope you get some chicks soon!
Well I started out with names only cause we had 3 & didn't plan on getting more. But then we got a few more, & then more, & then the name thing stopped! LOL
The ones that have names are:
Rocky the roo
Violet....those are my OE banties
then there is
Hank the crazy mutt roo. His brother Henry I gave him away.
One of my new baby Silkies had curled toes so I put bandaids on her feet & she looked like she had duck (paddle) feet so I call her Paddington or Paddie for short....
My 7 Buff Orps:
Boo Boo Girl
My 8 Delaware Blue Hens:
My 2 EE's:
My Partridge Cochin roo:
And last but not least..my RIR:
Then I have a goose named Gretchen and a duck named Wiliis ;o)
My two Black Sex-Links
My three Delawares
Just got three brown hybrid layers and my nephew named one Spazz
The other two are still nameless
This is great! I think everyone should name their chickens, except if you have lots and lots of them of course. But here are our names for our 10 chickens that we have:
the young red stars:
the older red stars:
young buff orpington hens:
young splash cochin rooster:
Buff cochin chick:
Black Amauracana chick:
We love our chickens very much, and they are wonderful pets! My dad is raising them to enjoy and get eggs from, and also to sell. We plan on hatching eggs from the hens, too this spring. Right now, we are planning on keeping these chickens we have for eggs and breeding, until they finally die from old age, or some other natural cause, such as predators(I'm hoping that doesn't happen though) then we will put them to rest peacefully in the little animal grave yard. And we plan to sell the chicks that we hatch to people who will take care of them.
But anyways, those are the names of the chickens. We named the black am. chick "Raven" because she is black and she looks like a crow, but Raven would be a better name then "crow" LOL
