Crazy chicken lady
I like to name my chickens so members of my household, and myself, have an easy was to refer to a chicken. For example, "Blue is broody." or "Blackie is trying to roost on the fence again." I name my chickens sometimes after their parentage (i.e. Betty Boop's cockerel son was named BB, another roo is named "Junior" in honor of his dad), based on color (Blue, Wendy [she's red], Blackie, Buffy), based on birth circumstances (Squash's shell was cracked), personality traits (Indy, Spunk, Scratch, one's named a dirtyword, Burrito [used to wrap her like a burrito for bumblefoot treatment]), and finally, we resort to human or classic names (Maddy, Poppy, Klaus, Gertie, Bellatrix, Penelope, Henrietta, Rooster Cogburn, Betty Boop). There are at least six that don't have names so we usually refer to them as (Burrito's baby, one of the leghorns, one of the barred rocks, etc).
