    That little guy is slow in more ways than one, isn't he? He may surprise us all and be huge one day, just never can tell.

    I'm really curious to see how he turns out. His brother and sister are looking mighty fine! How on earth do you name yours so easily? I can't decide on a name for the boy I kept!

    It was the 3 hour ride home [​IMG] Actually we just named Willie, his name is because Don asked me what color he was and I said Blue Wheaten, well Don is a big Buffy The Vampire Slayer fan and the guy who came up with that show is named Will Wheaten, he said Wheatie and I said Will and he said Willie......

    Schwarz, well we figured he needed a beefy big guy name

    Then since we name Schwarz I was thinking of a Hero type name and came up with Clark (kent) and then well Lois was a no brainer

    I've already used some of my best names on roosters who become buttheads, like Scout, Gabriel and Jake. I may have to reclaim them and revamp their tarnished reputations, LOL. Thought about Lex, but Lexie just died and I'm not sure I'm ready to call another one by that name yet.

    I had an Uncle Rex; he died about 10 years ago. His wife, my dad's older sister, was my Aunt Reba. She is who my RIR, Reba, is named after. Uncle Rex was a forest ranger in Alabama and took us out on patrol in his boat a couple times. He smoked a pipe with tobacco that smelled like cherries or something similarly sweet. So, thanks! Rex it is! My new boy's name is Rex. Now, to name his three girls. [​IMG]
