Never name something that you might end up eating. My roos don't usually get names until I know I will keep them. I never harvest hens no matter how old they get. So they get names early.
I hatched 3 black Australorp pullets last summer that were identical looking. So they became the BeeGees and all 3 answer to that.
It will probably only happen once. I name pretty much all of them eventually. My boyfriend got attached to four cockerels in the first set he helped me raise. He gave them clemency, as he put it. Now he complains we have no chickens to eat while simultaneously building a new living arrangement for the three we decided weren’t breeding material after they harassed the hens and caused all sorts of havoc in the flock as they’ve matured. Guess who won’t be granting any more clemency? lolOh no I might've messed up then! My husband fully intends on harvesting some. I think he's getting attached tho so I guess we will see how things work out. This is our first time with chicks.
