    Ours usually don't get named until we know a little something about them. Our rooster is Cogburn (from Brewster Cogburn?). We used to have a hen named Diane for Diane Fossey because it liked to hang around us primates.

    I wanted a theme for naming my chicks..either supermodels or Greek goddesses, but got overruled by my daughter. Actually, since I wanted her to have an interest in the chickens as well, we compromised.

    We have two super models: Tyra and Heidi
    Two were named after Harry Potter characters: Hermoine and Luna
    Two are Greek Goddesses: Juno and Diana (although we've started calling Diana "Princes Di" because she is so sweet)
    One my daughter named Emajean...I don't know why
    And the last got named twice...once Zena Warrior Princess and once Princess Kate so we tend to call her Zenakate. She behaves more like a warrior princess than Princess Kate so her name may be shortened to Zena over time.

    I'm going to admit her that while I can identify six of the eight girls, I can't tell the two Welsummers; Heidi and Hermoine apart.

    My other two are named Ellie and Tweety.

    Quote:When they were brand new my daughter insisted that one had a darker head stripe than the other, but at 3 weeks I'm not seeing that anymore. Are your Welsummers fully grown?

    We kinda do themes too... food always seems to come back around! lol!

    We have Pecker (daughter picked this because she pecks everything couldn't argue w/ her innocence) , Chrystal, Baby Blue, Bumble, Chewbacca, Cleopatra, Wonder Chic, Ming Ming, Jelly Bean, Abe Lincoln -started out woodstock from snoopy but color turned more like a copper penny so my daughter renamed him, Isabeau, Navarre, and Lady Igraine, and one still unnamed as we are not sure if it's a he or she...

    In the past we have had, Banana Pudding, Hersheys Kiss (kisses), Bobo, Peanut Butter, Macaroni, Chesnut, Fluffy, Acorns, Dot, etc...
