    Matilda, Spackle Butt, Road Runner, Dutchess of Yolk ( coop insulators aka spent hens)
    Esther, Lil' crow, Robin, Ginger, Sylvia, Brown Betty( 3 BSL 3RSL)
    Mocha Spice, Double-double, Speckle, Freckle, Heckle, Jeckle ( Bovan Browns)

    I don't name mine till their personalities develop...for the life of me, I still cannot come up with a name for my POL easter egger...and all the babies, I am waiting to see which ones I will be parting with before giving anyone names! But all the ones that are staying for sure have names [​IMG]

    Okay, I have 96 chickens, and only the hens that earn names, by actions or looks get named. All of the roosters we plan on keeping get named, because it is easier to talk about them by name, than by breed and age.

The rest are called little baby. Their two different flocks so they free range at different times everyday. If I call out come on little baby's they will all come to me. Its funny to watch.
