Need help naming!

Discussion in 'Managing Your Flock' started by Peachesbabychick, Nov 3, 2011.

  1. Hello! [​IMG] I am going to be getting 6 English imported Orpington's, (2 blue, 2 black and 2 splash) and I like to think of names in advance! I have a habit of naming them after cute foods, like Cookie, Peaches, Muffin and Sugar Plum, and I am trying to break that habit! I just like names that have something to do with their color.

    Thankyou!

  3. Sorry I don't have them yet! Google: splash orpington pics, black orpington pics, and blue orpington pics

    They are going to look just like those!

    Thankyou![​IMG]

    How about pulling names out of the Bible. Just a thought. Lotta unique names in there.
