    Tonight I got 6 hens from an ad on craigslist.

    3 are red sexlinks & 3 are black sexlinks.

    Normally I just name all my chickens and be done with it but I want to try something different and have some fun getting ideas for their names from forum members, so,,, help me name my new girls.

    I'm planning on naming mine all "flower" names, e.g. Daisy, Rose, Pansy, etc. Feel free to use this not-so-original idea...[​IMG]

    When I had 3 Welsummers that I couldn't tell apart, I went for a collective name: "The Marges".

    My friend did likewise with her CMs, she called them the "Bettys". [​IMG]
