    Are thay girls or boys???

    Grey: Napolean /or/ Xanta (s/he seems so BIG and SPECIAL personality-wise)

    Brown: Alistair /or/ Mary Anne (seems more old-fashioned.)

    This thread is like, MY DREAM COME TRUE. Naming chicks!!! [​IMG] Thank you, augiedranch!

    You could give them gender-neutral names for now, till you know what they are. There are many....Terry, Pat, Chris, Jordan....[​IMG] about Chamois for the buff, and Flannel for the grey?

    Did I mention I like weird names? [​IMG]

    I like Maude for a hen, and Sal for a roo.

    But for fun names, McNugget or Marsala.

    What cute chicks. I also think you should go with names that fit either gender or names that can be adapted:

    Gray: Georgie (George/Georgia)
    Buff-colored: Ginger (couldn't think of boy name)

    I think one of mine will be named Ginger. I rather like that name and I have one whose color will fit that name. Have fun with the naming [​IMG]
