    I started out refusing to name my chickens, BUT my first 3 are still called, "The Black one" , "The other black one", and " the little black one". I did name my rooster and keeping with the Harry Potter theme of names for my dogs...He is Sirius Black. The only other one we refer to by name and not color gets called Nosy Rosy or Lil' Biddy. She is a curious thing and likes to untie my shoes.

    I love the names of all your chickens[​IMG]

    Here are the names of all the chickens I have had :)
    Fraidy (She got scared easy)
    Pirate (He only had one eye)
    Clover (She was killed by a racoon :(
    Ginger (She was blossom's friend and when Blossom died was really sad cause she was the only other chicken I had at that time. So I gave her to a friend :(
    Queen of Night a.k.a Q.N. (from the magic flute opera the black hen in my picture)
    Blossom (the Friend of Q.N. and the brown hen in my picture :)
    Eggleta a.k.a Gimpy (she was really small and one of her legs was messed up :(
    Milky a.k.a Sycho
    Marble (She was a beautiful mixed breed with tons of different colours!)
    Jesabell (Named after a queen? she was really mean and would pick on Eggleta and Milky)
    Medio Pollito a.k.a Medly (Have you read the tale of the half chick? You can find it on the internet just type in Medio Pollito)
    Papagena a.k.a Poppy (again, the magic flute opera :)
    Demeter a.k.a Deme (the greek godess of Agriculture and Horticulture)
    Hope this helps[​IMG]

    We do not have the greatest names for our birds. I did not want chickens but my husband brought them home and a year later I am the "crazy chicken lady" lol. They are my babies and need to come up with some better names for them. More coming this spring too [​IMG] so I need to start coming up with some good names.......

    We currently have:

    Big Red- our rooster and daddy to our babies
    Big Black - EE
    Medium Black
    Mother Hen - broody hen that hatched two chicks
    Peeper - hatched from mother hen- loved listening to her peeps
    Goldie Hawn- Friendly, outgoing, flashy lady
    Annoying One- loud hen that talks too much lol
    Annoying One's Little Sister - quiet, smaller and identical to her sister
    Cuckoo - hen that looks like a cuckoo maran but lays a light brown egg- our adopted chick
    And to unnamed beauties- which is why I am on this thread [​IMG]

    Rehomed:

    Bald Black - never ending molt..... need I say more? But when we gave her away- she had started growing all her feathers back. I bet she is a beauty now....
    Peep - first chick we hatched in our garage with Mother Hen. Mysteriously passed away last week [​IMG] She was my favorite....
    Handsome- adorable rooster we rehomed
    Big Guy- another young rooster we rehomed
