    Chickens need old ladyish names, cause that is what they remind me of old ladies talking whenever they are doing their thing. [​IMG]

    Quote:yeah, my mom seems to agree about the old lady names... Personally, I think chicks should get cute names, so that when they grow up and become less "cute", they will retain some of their cuteness from their names.

    I also like themed names, so my four chicks are named after goddesses from various mythologies- Isis, Hecate, Demeter, Innana. Not the cutest names out there, but at least there's a theme.

    hehe, we let the kids and grandkids name some of the chickens. Actually the grandkids all got a chick for Easter (but the chicks have to live with me!).
    So:
    Leghorns: SR-Bob, Ted and Purbil (grandsons chicks)
    RIR's: pullets-Sweetcheeks and Alejandra
    EE's: pullets- So far- Queen Bee, haven't named the others yet
    Purbil (I love the creativity of that name) seems to be a cockerel, as at two weeks he is already getting a pink comb. Hope the others are girls..........

    I love all the names, thanks for the help. I've been looking on google too. I've found some more:

    Sadie(I really like)
    Emma
    Izzy
    Artemis
    Athena



    I might wait till there a little older to really put the name with the chick. One of the EEer's looks like a little chipmunk. I've been trying to find something that will fit her.
