    I just got in a bunch of new chicks last week, and I am going to show them in july. But I have no idea what I am going to name them. I always have a hard time naming them! I need some name suggestions please. I don't want any names like fluffy, sweetie, or tootsie to just name a few. Lol. I need some actual show names and unique names. I have two black frizzle bantams, a mille fleur (I might get another), a mottled cochin bantam, a partridge cochin, and I might get a blue silkie bantam from my friend, and a silver spangled hamburg (rooster I believe),

    What about Millie, for the Mille fleur? Misty, for the blue Silky? Midnight, for one of the black Frizzles? Or any names like Shine or Charlotte?

    Hi,

    I pick one of my favorite movies and name them from the characters.

    I have Micheal, Paulie, Lucca Bratzi, Santino/Sonny,Vito Corleone, Fredo, Johnny Fontane and Hyman Roth from a couple years ago then the next year I chose songs..Rico and Lola, Jack and Diane, Kaw-Liga, Jimmy "Cracked" Corn, and musician names, Cash, Muddy Waters, Bocephus, Janis, and of course Ringo. (John,Paul, and George found new homes.)

    I also have most of the Lord Of The Rings characters, and a few from Star Trek.

    I usually just name the roos because they are the ones always getting in the way.

    Yeah, I am a little odd with them. Sometimes they sort of earn their name if they remind me of an obnoxious family member :)

    People think I am silly for naming them but I say, "How are they supposed to know who I am talking to?"

    I hope I gave you some ideas!!

    -Nicol
