    I just have to tell someone about this lady. The lady called me and wanted to know why I named my chickens such strange names. She also wanted to know if she could change their names. I tried to explain to her that I had not named them but she would not hear it. My ad lists the breed name ~ hatch date ~ price. NO NAMES!!! How on earth do these people make it through life? [​IMG]

    Okay thank you all for allowing me to rant a little [​IMG]

    Did you list the breeds? Maybe she thought something like "Orpington" was a name! [​IMG]

    Yes my ad reads like

    Buff Orpington~ hatch date 4/19/09 ~ $$$

    The list continues like that for about 15 or so lines. She thinks I named my chicken buff orpington!!!! I tried for about 10 minutes to explain that buff orpington is the type of chicken and NOT a pet name. I even gave her examples using dogs but she just wouldn't have it and almost seemed angry at me because she thought I named them taking the honor of naming them away from her. I told her she could name them whatever she would like and her response was," Since you have been calling them those strange names they probably won't respond to any name I give them so I will just look elsewhere" [​IMG]
