    How will you tell them apart?
    How about names on the same theme, or all starting with the same letter of the alphabet?

    Yeah dog attacks are the worst, I lost my favorite two hens yesterday to a neighbor that has pit bulls the size of Great Danes. Hailey, for a girl name? (Hailey's Comet)..

    Oooooo i like that thanks. Yeah its sad i think it was an own dog what got loose cos he kinda gave up when he fought back a stray would have ate him. He was a huge cockrell like a dinosaur lol lovely bird tho but was too big for the girls so now we got the 1 cockrell left and 13 hens so good ratio xxx

    I have a Thelma and Louise. I had to band Louise so I could tell them apart!! I love finding names that go together. I also have Lucy and Ethel. And I'm sure I will have to band one of them when they get bigger. Right now Lucy is bigger than Ethel.
