    I will be getting a New Jersey Giant rooster the week of June 8th (as a chick) I have 3 names i cant decide on: "Blazer", "Oscar" or "Bruno". I know June is a long ways from now, but I'd really appreciate a vote of one of the 3 names :) Which ever name has the most votes before the week of June 8th....then that will be the roosters name. I will also upload pics of him when he and his future ladies arrive. Also, share the names of you're chickens as well! :) THANKS!!

    I like Bruno. It reminds me of the great wrestler, Bruno Sammartino, who was a hulk of a man, but a gentle one outside of the ring (I'm showing my age now). Like Bruno, Jersey Giants are gentle giants. Our 25 chickens are all hens, with most of them named by my granddaughter (pictured in my avatar) after Disney princesses; Snow White, Cinderella, Aurora, Briar Rose, Belle, Jasmine, Mulan, Ariel, Tiana, Rapunzel, Meridah, Elsa, Anna, and some of them named after comic book super-heroines; Diana, Zatanna, Shayera, Barda, Dinah, Selena, Helena, Wanda, Natasha, and a few of them after My Little Ponies; Luna, Celestia, Fluttershy. I think I have them all correct; I have a hard time keeping up with who's who. :eek:)

    I like Oscar because I don't know of a JG rooster called that.
