    My daughter was so excited about naming our new chicks that I couldn't resist! There are only a select few that have marking so we can tell them apart and the rest just get called what ever name we want to call them at the time.

    Here they are:

    Sunny
    Patsy
    Loretta
    June
    Nugget
    Olivia
    Myra
    Silvia
    Betty
    and....
    Shoe!

    That's what you get when you have a soon to be 3 year old helping name things! lol

    My 1 y/o roos are Nugget and Archie.

    We are still working on the new babies. My teenage girls are helping.
    So far we have Alex and Isabelle (Izzy). 10 names to go. I am trying to convince my older daughter that "Demon" is not a good name for a hen. [​IMG]
    I think your 3 y/o is doing just fine.

    Those are all great names, but still, one can't help but wonder what went through her head when she named one 'Shoe'... The mind of a toddler is a fickle thing.

    Peep 1
    Peep 2
    ect........... That way there is no body mad because they like someone elses name better and stuff like that. I can call Peep and the whole flock will come running, at least when I have treats.

    We have a one year old hen named Carrot. She was named by the same daughter who just yesterday named one of our new pullets Buster. [​IMG]

    If we have any extra roos that we end up keeping, my son is doing some pretty serious lobbying for naming him Superman.

    My little girl wants to name them (among others) Brittany and Oceana. *sigh* She also thinks they are her chicks even though I have at no point even hinted at them being hers. Although, after a few months of doing chicken chores, she might just want to give up her claim to ownership. [​IMG]
