    My four and six year old boys came up with the names for our chickens. The Buff Orpington is Blanca, the Ameraucana is Loui, the RIR is Rosey and the Black Bared Rock is Pecker (my favorite name). Blanca and Rosey were named because of their colors. Loui came out of left field. Pecker was named for her actions although if one of them is going to be a rooster, that would be the one. :|

    Okay, My sons each named theirs...My three year olds is "Froggy" My 6 year olds is "Hannah"(after a girl he likes at school), and my seven year olds is "Mrs. Lewis". I have one with a twisted beak named "Twisty", how original, and My surprise rare chick which we have yet to figure out what she is, is "Sweety". we also named two of the others that we were not keeping, "Cinnamon" and "Pretty Bird". A friend of mine told me to name them nugget, tender, corn soup, and any other food related items that go with chicken.
