    Hmmm... "M" names...

    I don't follow "rules" in naming my flock. I just name 'em what ever comes to mind. [​IMG]

    Rhode Island Red Hens: Larry, Curly, & Moe
    White Leghorn Hens: Shelly & Maggie
    Black Sexlink Hen: Sequoia
    Barred Rock Hen: Kim
    Araucana Hen: Hannah
    Polish Rooster: Tom
    Polish Hens: Bill & Gustav
    Wynadotte Hens: Princess Mononoke & Princess Nausica
    Buttercup Hens: Theodora & Zenobia
    Frizzle Rooster: Frankie
    Buff Cochin Rooster: Chicken Joe
    African Geese: Jazz & Nene
    People always laugh when they find out I have hens with man names, but I think it's cute. [​IMG]

    A friend named a black Australorp "Morticia."
    I have Manon, Madeleine and Mercedes on my list. And there are lots of French Marie names. Marie-Noelle, Marie-Claudette, Marie-Chantal, Marie-Antoinette......for that matter Mimi. Or Meimei, the Chinese version.

    Mine are named

    -Fiona
    -Evelyn
    -Sophie
    -Scarlett
    -Samantha

    I wanted to name one "Mother Clucker" but my mom told me to stick with the more traditional names listed above. Plus that wouldnt sound to good if my 6 year old son went to school and told everyone he had a pet hen named Mother Clucker. [​IMG]
