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.

I have so many chicks, and we have only named two - Twerkie (first born) - first chick we saw hatch - it looked like it was twerking :idunno


The second one is a frilkie (frizzled silkie) we named her Phyllis.

The full grown hens/roosters all have names:
Denny, Penny, Dott, Mabel, Honey, Janet, Marge, Jagger, Carlton, George, Ida, Pearl, Lorraine, Steve, Macy, Bertha, Martha, Harriet, Ruby, McDonalds and Olive. Also have 10 chicks that are 12 weeks old: Cathy, Eedie, Lynette, Fern, Willow, Hoover, Stanley, Bonnie, Gigi and Skittles.

Is Elspeth named after Elspeth Gordie? Just curious.
