    hi I just got a new rooster yesterday and I am having trouble picking a name for him. He is a barred rock and I don't know how old he is. He looks to be only young though. My mums friend found him half dead on the side of the road and thought I would love. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them thanks!

    G’Day from down under katlovechickens [​IMG] Welcome!

    Did the road he was found on have a name? Could you use it to make a name for him? Or ....

    Willie? As in Willie Nelson ‘On the Road Again’

    Morrison? As in Morrison Hotel ‘Roadhouse Blues’

    Jack? As in ‘Hit the Road Jack’

    Roger or Miller? As in ‘King of the Road’ by Roger Miller

    Jackson? As in ‘Running on Empty’ by Jackson Browne

    Tom or Cochrane? As in ‘Life is a Highway’ by Tom Cochrane

    Radar? ‘Radar Love’ by Golden Earring “The road has got me hypnotized, I’m speeding into a new sunrise!”

    I will stop now [​IMG]

    I hope you enjoy being a BYC member. There are lots of friendly and very helpful folks here so not only is it overflowing with useful information it is also a great place to make friends and have some fun. Unlike non chicken loving friends, family and colleagues, BYC’ers never tire of stories or pictures that feature our feathered and non feathered friends [​IMG]

    I surely am no good with the names, however others have given you some wonderful ideas.

    Enjoy your new rooster, he sure is a "Lucky" boy to have you! [​IMG]

    Great to have you aboard and welcome to our flock! :)
