    My WCBP is named Jojo after a friend who had a really bad hair day, my 4 buff Orpington girls are Hammond (after Richard Hammond), Henrietta, Everest (cause she liked to sit on shoulders when she was little) and Padma (after Padma Lakshmi) but they usually are just referred to as the 4 Henriettas.

    My husband's little d'Anvers roo is named Fidget and my SD's bantam Buff Brama roo is named Fluffy Ralph.

    I named my meaties after my favorite dishes. My favorite hen wound up named Chicken Strips. The little one got named Manderin. There was Fried chicken, he was the dumb one,lol We had chickens named Orange, Ginger, walnut, peanut, you name it. Makes it real easy when you have kids, they ask what it is and you say that's Fried chicken right there., easier than saying well sweetie, thats sparkles :)

    I have 31 hens, 3 roosters.....Only a few have names because 10 hens are white pearl leghorns.....they are identical...Of my Red stars, we have Blondie - her neck and tail feathers are blonde, Henrietta - she can alsways be found right next to Blondie, Gertrude - she looks a little old, the other two aren't named, Silkie Rooster - Prune - his comb looks like somebody smushed a prune on his nose, Silkie hen - Lovey, r.i.p. - reminded a friend of a woman he knew. EE roo - Tim - picked him up one day and he looked at my face as though he was going to peck, I said to him, "I don't think so Tim" it stuck, EE pullet - Squawker, kindergarteners named her, can you guess why?, Also have a Jersey Giant, barred Rock, 5 EE's, 5 bantam brahmas, 4 SLW's, all no names yet.

    Looking for 2 turkey's to raise for.....you guessed it, Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners...anyone in western colorado with some to sell?

    We have five buff orpingtons and the the four of us each got to name one and then together we picked the fifth chicks name. My 9 year old daughter named hers Nugget, my 7 year old son named his Chicky. I picked Chopsticks and my husband picked Dumpling. The fifth one we named Sushi. And no, even though they pretty much all have food names, they are just for eggs and are our pets. [​IMG]

    Very fun!

    We named our first six girls from Beatle's songs: Martha, Prudence, Loretta, Lucy, Maggie, Sadie.

    The next three were named for some of the companions on Dr. Who - Rose, Donna, and Amelia. Amelia might be a roo, in which case he will be Rory instead of Amelia.
     
  8. Hell o all.
    Thank you for all the wonderful names you have been sharing with me.
    I have enjoyed the story's and pictures you have been shared with BYC.


    I no longer have my 10 peeps, I have lost one silky named Marie. She got into the back
    yard with our Basset Hound Linden, Len thought that it was wonderful to have someone eye to eye
    to play with. He layed on her when trying to play as I was unable to help her out of the dogs yard in time.


    The other nine are doing well. Easter is a Roster so we changed His name to Ricky and Peggy is now named
    Lucy, We felt that Ricky need a Lucy LOL.
    Please keep the names coming as I know that it's helping others to find names for there chickens.

    My RIR's are Addie and Clara......Addie is short for Adeliene, which is the formal German name for Heidi. Clara was Heidi's friend in the childhood story with Shirley Temple....(Heidi)
    My Cuckoo Maran's had to have funny lady names....Lucy and Ethel...from 'I Love Lucy' ...1950's sitcom with Lucile Ball!

    Just decided on names for most of my new blue Orpingtons:

    Pullets

    Petti for her petticoat
    Fluffer Nutter also pretty petticoat
    Crissy she is kind of ditzy & reminds me of the Crissy on Three's Company

    Cockerels:
    Jax play on Jack from Three's Company (was calling him Sly but just didn't fit)
    1 w/o a name as of now. Not planning on keeping him.
