    I don't name mine as they are raised for meat but I do have identifiers for them. I have different colored zip ties on most of my female birds left legs so that I can keep track of when they start laying, broodiness, mothering ability etc. So I have chickens, ducks and geese named Orange, Green, Blue and Pink. Don't know if that helps. [​IMG]

    If I were going to name him, I'd probably wait to see his personality. Although I have been known to name pets opposite of what they are. Shadow for a white dog, Echo for a deaf dog etc.

    Lewis/Louis however you want to spell it. I don't know why, but it sounds like such an appropriate name.[​IMG]
