    My 5 and 6 year old daughters named ours:

    "Filly"-white cochin pullet
    "Black"-sexlink pullet
    "Brownie" -EE
    "Heartsa" -Australorp RIP
    "Snowball" Leghorn RIP

    I secretly call Black, the sexlink, "Snookie" cuz she gets on my nerves and has an outspoken personality, lol. And parts of her are very orange.

    We ordered replacement chicks, another Snowball, another EE unnamed, and another Australorp will be called "Princess Heartsa."

    Quote:When my niece was about 8 years old her mom got three bunnies that they were going to raise for meat (they already had about a dozen chickens, a huge garden and a pig).

    My niece quite cleverly named them "Wheat, Milk and Chocolate" because she was allergic to wheat, milk and chocolate and therefore couldn't eat any of them.[​IMG]
