    Now that our roo has let us know he really is a Roo just a few days after you folks visually confirmed it, we're thinking of names for him.

    He "was" Red Riding Hood. He is a BO/RIR (coincidentally, his mother and father were the ones killed in the dog attack), and is a striking red/orange.

    So, here's our choices...which one suits you best?

    1. Junior (for Billy Jr.)
    2. Rooster Red
    3. Eric (because our other BO/RIR mix is Annie, we thought we could name it Eric after the TV mother and father, Eric and Annie of 7th Heaven).

    Thanks. [​IMG]

    Rooster red or maybe just call him red? It is closer to the original name whitch will be less confuseing for you and him.[​IMG]

    Eric the Red is a good one...I'll have to run that past hubby when he gets home.

    I'm giving him the "ultimate" say of the ideas, being he's the one that wanted Billy so badly when we got's only fitting he name the son. [​IMG]

    Eric the Red is good-how about Fireball? I like that name for a red chicken.

    This is my "Papa" I think he is a buff orp/RIR cross and oddly enough,he was hatched from eggs I set right after my flock was destroyed by a neighbor's dog. I'd love to see a pic of your guy.
