    Quote:Maybe you could name them after characters in greek mythology. ( Zeus, Athena, etc. ) I have a friend who does that. Or maybe you could name them after flowers. ( rose, lilly, daisy, etc. ) We named or buff orp Chrysanthemum. Just some suggestions.

    I've been naming mine based on country of orgin or historical information. Dorkings were anicent Roman breed, so my roosters name is Roman. My Blue Andalusian from Spain, so he was named Indigo, but when he started crowing at 5 weeks, it got changed to Big Daddy...
    With Black Australorps coming from Australia, you could go with the names of the major cities...I did that with two kittens I had that looked like Koala Bears. Their names were Sydney and Melbourne.. Have fun with it!!
