    There are so many creative peeps on this board I thought I'd ask for some help. We have a white shorgirl "chick" who needs a name and I am trying to think of something to fit his/her circumstances so far.

    S/he was part of a group of 6 chicks that I listed on craigslist a couple of weeks ago. I had them all sold but my daughter had set the cage out in the sun while we were waiting for the buyer to show up. Long story short s/he developed heat exhaustion and I didn't sell her. She recovered nicely and now is all alone as far as her little flock is concerned. I have noticed for the last several days s/he has taken to following her papa around. It is awfully cute to see these two fluffy white butts walk around together. He is my alpha roo and looks out for the lil' chick. I don't have any other white birds so these two really stick out.

    His name is April (as in April fresh Downy)

    Any of you have a good idea for a name? I'm all about dry humor and sarcasm [​IMG]

    I'd call her, "Lonely!" Alone, Uno,
    Heat ..... Sun.... Sunny.... Furnace ...... Stove ..... Oven ..... Hottie

    His name is April (as in April fresh Downy)

    Or, how about, "Ivory," (as in Ivory soap)
    or "Clorox," (as in bleach)

    Lucky!​

    I will go the other route...

    How about :

    Daddy's Girl
    April's Showers (with affection)
    Shadow
    May (which follows April)
    PuppyDog

    or Bling,

    since I bet that white sticks out like a diamond in all those dark birds...
