    My chicks will be 4 weeks old wednesday- and are semi- named!! they had nicknames, and some have stuck, and some just are not going to work! We have one EE that we think is going to be a rooster- and his name will be either Julian or Ricky ( not sure if anyone has seen the show trailer park boys, but it depends on if he is "smart" or not!). Another EE will be Speckle, because she has a speckled head. The third EE needs a name- we had been calling her racing stripe ( because she had a racing stripe down the side of her head!) but this is not so easy on the tongue..... Suggestions? Next we have 2 white rocks. One has a small stain from a raspberry on her wing, so her name is Raspberry. The other white rock was going by " the other white girl"...for some reason, we decided that Florence would be a good name for her!!

    I've got 5 more on the way in a few weeks......holy cow ( or holy chicken!) I planned on 6, and when we lost one, decided that 10 was a better number!

    I wanted to name all of our chicks after super models or Greek goddesses, but got into a debate with my daughter and added "Princesses" and "Harry Potter Characters" to the list. So, we have a Tyra and a Kate and a Heidi (for Tyra Banks, Kate Moss and Heidi Klum) but Kate could also be Princess Kate and her fellow princess, "Dianna" could also be a Greek goddess. And Minerva could be either a Harry Potter character or a Greek goddess. That leaves Ginny and Luna, also Harry Potter characters. And don't forget Xena Warrior Princess.

    that is cute! We were going to pick out names beforehand, but I am glad we waited....some of them have named themselves, and some of the names I thought of totally would not have fit!

    That's what happened with Xena Warrior Princess, we had a more demure name picked out (she was going to be Kate I think) but she turned out to be so feisty that we changed her name. I could tell them all apart when they were chicks, but now my two barred plymouth rocks are so identical I can only make a guess as to which one is which.
