    Name their chickens after people they have known, like friends, 3rd grade teacher, the lady down the road?

    I have a hen named Thelma, after my Great Aunt Thelma, (my grandmother's sis) (acts just like her), Dorothy and Fausty are named for 2 older ladies that I used to play cards with with my grandmother. (there is a resemblance too [​IMG]) Super nice ladies.

    No. That is a great idea though. My kids name them all. Sometimes it gets hard. We only have five so far.[​IMG]

    I have "people" names for a lot of my hens, but I've never named any after anyone specific, so far. Well, not anyone I know, at any rate. [​IMG]

    Yep definately. My only named chicken at this point is Caroline, after Sister Caroline, the lady who married my husband and I. Also a resemblance as Caroline is very LOUD, sometimes socialble, and very puffy [​IMG]

    well, she doesn't know it yet (guess she will now) but I just named my first hatched chick Priss, after MissPrissy, since she is the one that helped me incubate them! Here she is:


    I really hope it's a girl, or he will have a funny name!!! [​IMG]
