    I have 28 healthy baby chicks that are about 4 days old and even though they are still babies and do not show there full personalities yet I still want to get started on finding good names for them. Does anyone have any good suggestions?

    With that many, maybe think of a theme first. Movie stars or characters, authors, flowers, etc.

    Like Burbs said, choose a theme. I like the idea of using the players from the game Clue. One of my new chicks is Colonel Mustard, since he currently has a yellow comb. But you also have Miss Scarlet, Professor Plum, Mr. Green, Mrs. White, and Mrs. Peacock. But you have the weapons, too. Rope, Lead Pipe, Knife, Wrench, Candlestick and Revolver. Maybe a spin-off of the first few. Roper, Piper. and Jack Knife.

    We only have 8 but we named them according to their heritage/origin. So the Sussex is Susie, maran (came from France ) is Lucienne, Brahma is sita, etc. Then the golden laced wyandotte is Goldie, silver laced is Sylvia, Rhode island red is Rhodie, Plymouth rock is Roxy, and yellow sex link is sunny. Makes it easier to remember!

    Our newest chicks are named after cartoon charaters (ex. the 2 welsummer chicks are Chip and Dale)
