My chickens are pets, so they all have names. I give them names based on what they look like, their breed, their personality, or sometimes it's just a random name that seems to suit them.
I can easily tell my chickens apart, even those that look identical to other people. They just look different to me. :confused:

Mine have names, but I mostly name them after food as a reminder of their ultimate purpose.

The Marans are French chicken dishes, the Dominiques are Boar's Head chicken lunchmeats (I'm a deli clerk), the Langshans were going to all be Chinese food but one is En Croute because he had pasty butt as a chick ...
