    Tonight I got 7 new chickens - 6 hens, 1 rooster - and they need names! I got 3 white silkies (2 hens, 1 roo), 2 white EEs, 1 Barred Rock, and 1 Jersey Giant. I was thinking for the Silkies following a name theme, like Disney princesses/princes or gemstones. The other ladies I was thinking of following pretty names like I did with my other girls, such as Lucy or Cassie.

    Does anyone have any thoughts or opinions!?

    ( : That's a lot of chickens all at once! ----often they kind of name themselves.

    Tell me about it! My dad has been working at a farm doing carpentry work and they breed chickens and often switch out their flock. It came time to rid of some young ones and I thought he was bringing me 4-5 silkies. It didn't work that way, lol. I didn't know until he showed up!

    Well, do the original chickens get along with the newbies? Have they met?

    They have met and it didn't go as badly as I expected. They've all snuggled onto the roost ladder together. The silkies found a little place on the floor next to the ducks. We'll see how tomorrow goes since they only had maybe 45 minutes together before bed.
