    I just finished naming all my chickens and after looking at the list I had to laugh and call my mom. I started reading off some of the names I gave them...Ruby, Daisy, Jenny..I said, "Are you seeing a pattern here?" She said, "Yes. My sisters!"

    It wasn't intentional. They just all have real country names that seem to work for hens. I think there might have been something subliminal about it.

    So, you know what she was upset about? That I hadn't named one after her! I said, "I don't want a hen named after my mother!" So we compromised and I gave one her middle name, Louise.

    Now when they are all cackleing and talking at the same time it does kind of remind me of a family reunion!

    I am seriously considering changing my roo's name to "Uncle Bob"!

    My kids just started naming our birds. They are young and haven't been around a lot of profanity so sometimes they just don't know what they are saying.

    We now have a turkey named Pecker Head. LOL

    Take care,

    Tami

    LOL!

    My DD wanted to name one of ours "Pecker" too. I vetoed that one. She changed it to Lippy, cuz she usually gets your lip. Lippy is wearing a bright orange leg band so we know to keep her away from our faces!
