    i just got my chicks today and i got a few differnt breeds including brown leghorns, EEs, Barred rocks, new hampshire red, and red sexlink.
    i got 2 EEs, 2 brown leghorns, 2 barred rocks, 1 new hampshire red, and 1 red sexlink. they are all pullets
    i was wondering if you could help me name mine? the red sexlink i have already named omlet but the darker EE (my favorite one so far) i have yet to name and i want HER name to be fun but somewhat seriouse.
    here she is:

    Those are some cute chicks! I can't really help with names, though. Mine are almost 3 weeks old and most of mine still don't have names, only the first 6 feed store chicks have names, the other 13 are still nameless (most of them I can't tell apart yet to get an idea of personality)

    Here's our chicks names if any give you any help...

    RIR... Lucky (8yo's baby)
    BO... Curly Shirley, aka Shirley (named by 4yo)
    BR... Rockette
    EE's : boy... Bucky
    girls.... Chirpy, and her little sis, Twirpy

    The 4 I hatched won't be getting names. I am planning on selling the NNs (they are too freaky for me) and the 2 BSL are going to my neighbor. The 3 meaties won't get named for obvious reasons.
    The 7 banties will eventually get names if I can ever tell them apart.

    I really like the name Marsalla for your darker EE. It is a chicken dish but its also a pretty name. I only have 2 of my 15 named, one Aussie is Wanda and one that I think now is a Wyandotte is named Bertha. Bertha is the biggest one of them all though I don't think she will be for long!

    hmm... i am still thinking of names.....
    maybe i could watch them more closely and name them by there personalities. (if i can get a name for all those personalities...)
    Both the EEs are not shy at all, they actually walk up to me and want to snuggle in my hand.
    the 2 barred rocks are like that too, maybe a bit more skiddish though
    the 2 brown leghorns are somewhat shy and sleep a lot.
    the red sex link (which i already named omlet) is very energetic and has almost racing stripes down her back.
    the new hampshire red eats all the time

    did that help with the names at all?
