    I just got 11 adorable new chickens!! 7 of them are chicks, 4 are adult seramas.
    I prefer names for both genders for the silkie chicks, since they are a straight run, but if you have a really cute hen name thats fine!
    Also I should note that the Star and the Welsummer are supposed to be females
    Here they are:
    1. My Black Star female! Not a silkie
    [​IMG]
    2. My buff silkie, had her eyes closed most of the time until she was 5-6 days old, now they are open
    [​IMG]
    3. My white silkie, very chirpy on the day of the photo shoot!
    [​IMG]
    4. My black silkie chick, super cute and friendly, my favorite! likes to just perch on my hand and is very quiet! Also the runt of the silkies, only like 2 inches tall at the shoulder

    5. My light blue silkie( could one of the blues be a splash?)
    [​IMG]
    6. My dark blue silkie

    7. My tall gangly welsummer female!!

    Now for the Seramas!!
    1. My Black Hen

    My rooster, his tail looks ugly because he is molting and has been breeding for a while before I got him

  2. I usually like picking themes for my chickens, so here are some ideas:

    5 Silkies
    Snow White/Charming
    Sleeping Beauty/Prince Phillip
    Goldilocks/Grizzly
    Rapunzel/Flynn Rider
    Ariel/Eric

    1 Black Star
    Maybe something like Galaxy or Pluto

    1 Roo Serama
    Alfalfa or Carnation

    3 Hens Serama
    Brome or Rose
    Prairie or Daisy
    Fescue or Lily

    I love your name ideas Silkie Chick!!
     
  5. Thanks... We are always having chicks hatch, so I try and think of names that go together, because it makes it easier to remember which babies go with the mamas.
     
  6. Oh, and I think your baby chicks are adorable!

    Thanks! Yah you are good at chicken names, usually when people post names I dont like them. Mostly because they put names such as KFC, or names that involve cooked chicken, or its something that is not creative like: Bob.

    I can rarely name a chick. I wait until they earn a name that fits. I've tried naming chicks before and almost all are renamed as teens/adults when they start displaying their personalities.
