    Hey, BYC. Post pics of your chickens here and tell us their names! I think of chickens as family and I name all of mine. Cool names, aptly named chickens, or stories about how your chickens got their names, please!

    I will start with a story.

    I started by hatching 3 EE eggs. One hatched Saturday, one Sunday, and one really late Tuesday. The older two were named by a family friend. The oldest one was dark in color and named Chipotle. The middle chick was a blondie named Papaya. I got to name the third one, and it was so tiny compared to the other two that I named it Nugget. Chipotle and Papaya are now 1 and a half month old hens, and Nugget is bigger than both of them, a handsome roo who protects his sibs.
