    I've always believed that roosters should have strong, manly names. I've had a Zeus and a Thor. That all went out the window with my new birds. Rosie turned into an Impy and my huge CX cockerels name is Ollie.
    I suggest Zeus, Apollo, or Ra (as in the sun god).

    Ok.........tell us a bit more about him - his personality, shy, bold, indiffrent, rude? [​IMG] I am sure he not rude, but well maybe he is. [​IMG]

    Any quirks? Daily habbits?

    More pictures so we get a full look at him? [​IMG]

    Don't mind me, but I like people names, and I immediately thought of Walter. [​IMG]

    What can I say?? My roos are: Carl (EE), Alex & George (Silver Sebrights), Charlie (Buff Brahma), and Nugget (bantam mottled Cochin). Nugget broke the series, obviously. But I know I've got some more roos in the growing chicks to name.

    Hi HorseFeatherz NV,
    In reply to your request on his temperament..................... he is not rude, I can approach him outside and in the pen/house pick him up
    without a fuss. He does get assertive with his other spring hatch-lings.

    As to bantamboy's name suggestions...........................I don't know if you read HE IS A ROOSTER.[​IMG] [​IMG]

    Keep the name suggestions coming

    Thanx to all who commented [​IMG]
