    I have 8 hens hatched the first week of March. I waited until I had "inspiration" from each one to finish naming them (it didnt occur to me not to name them, they are pets). Four of them have just now started laying. Anyway, I like their names:

    Mary Sue Ethyl Ann Sarah Ophelia Bertha Belle Amber Irene Oprah Gayle Marie LaVieux (sp?) and ........ Lil Bit

    We call our red-star, STAR; our cuckoo marans' are Frick and Frack; our SLW is Princess (she's our squawker/screemer)and our Columbian Rock is called Whitey. Not very original, but suited for these chicks! [​IMG] we try to keep it simple [​IMG]

    I have 13 right now (none are laying so in chicken math I don't have any LoL) and so far I've only named 10.
    They are:
    2 mutts: Dougie and Fluff
    White silkie: Marshmallow
    2 blonde silkies: Presley and Petri
    5 black silkies: Rascal, Spike, Lutie, LoL the other 2 names elude me (Just named last night)
    And I still have 3 new mutts with no names because I want to wait and find out gender (though I think it's 2 girls and 1 boy).
