    Okay I have a roo named Barack Obama (my kids named him ) and we HAD another roo his name was Robert C. Byrd (after the senator from WV) again, my kids watching too much campaining this year. They did not mean no disrespect, just was their favorite canidates. Then of course we have the usual hen names, Tessie, Honey, Miss Prissy, Crooked Comb, and I cant remember the rest. My kids could tell you,...Oh and we have the Phoenix's, Romeo and Juliet. My son says our rooster can say his name,...Barack! [​IMG]

    We do not name our chickens, if we have to process them it is better for the girls in my family that they not have a pet relationship mentality with them. However we do go out to the coop and sit and enjoy their antics and have a little fun. But no names it makes little sense on a farm to name animals except horses and dog's/cats.
