    I have to see them before I can name them. I have all different kinds of names for my birds:

    Roo (duh)
    Kojack
    Hiccups
    Rice N Beans
    Audrey
    Pot Pie
    Cue Ball
    Freckles
    Hannibal
    Annie
    Bridgette
    Cleopatra

    That leaves 6 without names.....

    I have six look-alike buff Chantecler hens and one that looks strangely like a buff orp.

    They all answer to "Hey, Chicken."

    My kids named my hens "Frank" (now Francine) and Elizabeth. Not very "chickenish" [​IMG]

    I have a four year old (was three when we got our chickens) he named the four Golden Comets: Ring, Rosy, Pocket, and Posy, from the nursery rhyme.

    The others are Goldie (BO), Blackbeak the Pirate Hen (Delaware), Bella (Faverolle), and Blanca the rescued Leghorn.

    These hens live at my MILs, so I had to keep my normal wild creativity under wraps. I think she still thinks naming chickens is a little... romantic of me [​IMG]. She's into it now, though.

    My only concession to my personality is Blackbeak [​IMG]

    When we hatched chicks last year, my son named them things like 'Racecar' and 'Turtle'. (we had first a rate and then a dog attack that killed all our chicks)

    I foresee the new chicks all having (masculine) Thomas the train names...
