    i am going to be getting 5 new chicks later this month, 1 white crested black polish, 1 white silkie, 1 black frizzle cochin bantam, 1 black sumatra, and 1 silver laced polish! Any cute, adorable, name ideas? I like the old lady names, right now I have a Rufus and Beatrice.

    I LOVE old lady names lol I think it's because I hate my generations and those after me. And I really hate people who give their children names like "North West" [​IMG]

    Anyways, I could rant about names forever so here are a few of my favorite favorite names


    Charolette
    Gertrude (Gerty)
    Dorothy (Dot)
    Joesphine
    Blanche
    Eleanor
    Hazel
    Lillian
    Mabel
    Bessie (my cars name :) )
    Pearl (awesome name for a white chicken)
    Rose
    Ruby
    Nellie
    Cora
    Evelyn
    Vera

    And always the classic......

    My granddaughter named my chickens:

    Roto & Sissory - Wellsummers
    Scram & Bulls - Russian Orloffs
    Violett & Blossom - Gold Wyandotts
    Mojojojo - Banty
    Bubbles - Polish Crested
    Karen - Brahmin
    The Blonde Squad - Buff Orpingtons that are indistinguishable from one another

    Roto ended up being a rooster and is now Roto-Rooster
    Sissory I call Sissy
    Scram inherited her buddy's name and is now Scrambles (she's a messy looking Orloff)
    Bulls became Woolley-Bully, another rooster, who now lives next door
    The Blonde Squad has been further defined as Buffy, Blondie, and Goldie but I can only tell them apart if they are right next to one another

    Not sure about cute names but here are the names of some of ours.

    Sam, Cas, Dean, Gabe: The oldest roosters.
    Chuck Norris: Youngest rooster, younger brother to the above, only rooster in a clutch with 9 sisters!
    Bob: The big daddy of all our flock, (R.I.P)
    Mama Sue: The big momma of our flock
    Stephano: The name of nearly every single hen in our flock because they all look the same! ^.^
    Legs: The random (breed unknown) hen who adopted us when she showed up on our property. Sticks out like a sore thumb in the crowd.
    GoldWing: Little golden chick
    SilverWing: Little silver chick
    Jet Li: The youngest outside chick whom has no siblings and finds joy in dive bombing the roosters! Even though he's only 1 month old!

    and, of course, Sp00n. The indoor chick whose just not as sharp as a fork.
