    We have
    Embden Squishy with his girls... Fred and Dora
    Sebbies Doc and Bashful (F) and Dasher and Dancer (F)
    Buff Dewlap Toulouse Louis with his girls Napoleon, Josephine and Marie

    the babies that we are keeping have not earned their names yet .... as they wont be a week old till tomarrow
     
  4. My P. Toulouse are Tucker and Tori. My brown chinese pair are Bill and Mildred, named after my grandparents because like them they are a close couple.
    Neither my trio of white chinese nor my trio of tufted romans have names yet ive only had them a month. Although since my bigger tufted goose is hoarding a nest of 15 eggs im leaning toward Mother Goose if she hatches them lol i swear she counts them lol
    My 3 brown chinese goslings are Dixie, Mickey and Minnie. I think Dixie might be a gander though, if not shes one thick legged girl.

    I don't know the gender of our goose, but my sisters named him/her Lucy-Goosey; Louie if it turns out to be a boy. I just call her Goose-Goose and she whistles back.[​IMG]

    My sons named our Toulouse gander "Franken-goose" (Frank for short) because he was so much bigger than everyone else (we adopted a mixed chicken/duck/goose flock last fall).

    We found a pretty Embden girlfriend for him...the boys named her Hedwig...(She's the closest they'll ever get to owning an owl!) [​IMG]

    Haven't named any of my geese but "Lucy" and "Silly" work well as first names if "goose" or "goosey" is their second.
