Except mine are more of a bad variety -

Dandelion/Superfatman
Aqua/Dumbquat
Shady/The Real Slim Shady
Kiff/Kiffypoo
Bobo/Toenails

I don't really know where I get any of those from LOL.

Erm.... Not really.. Nothing like yours, that's for sure! One of my girls is named Noisette, which is French for ''hazelnut,'' so I call her Nutty most of the time. That's about it...

Before chicks get true/permanent names they often get nicknames. "Bell-bottom boy," "Crossbeak cutie," "Golden boy," "Silver," "Wolverine."

Usually notable ones get 'em though. The rest of the batch is either sold or gets real names later on and in the mean time are either labelled by their color, size, gender, or type.

I give my ducks nicknames.. to name just a few

Flippy- gets called Doopy , dippy, floople and Flamingo

Stevie- Ray gets called Silly - Ray by my Daughter.

Ollie gets called Ollie Bollie or Bollie Boy.

The ducklings mostly all get called junior poopers.


We have a visiting duckling right now that is all uncoordinated. He cant walk a straight line and has his head all twisted.. We call him spazzy ducks- but only because he cant understand english and much less actually know what we mean by it.

I think basically they are all terms of endearment in some form.

How's Virgin 423 sound?

I miss my 423, she died earlier this year. She was always the most boisterous one who loved to pull faces and protest loudly about things that didn't matter.
