    Only the ones that are layers. We don't name the meat chickens... just feels wrong.

    Yes, we name ours, especially the favorite/special ones. We have 12, 4 different breeds. The problem with naming your chickens is that if you have all the same breed or several of a couple different breeds is that the older they get they tend to all look alike and it's hard to tell who's who. Plus it makes it harder if you plan on culling them and eating them.

    I name the really special ones. [​IMG] A lot of times they'll be named after book characters. E.g., Hermione, Tonks, Remus, Sirius, Percy, Annabeth. All the silkies are named as well, because... let's face it, they're extra special [​IMG]

    Every time I name a chicken it dies - so for their own best interest they remain nameless (except my chicken little [​IMG] )
