    No problem, I think we all get suckered into that -sort of a first initiation into being "real" chicken keepers, lol. I have always named my chickens in the past, but with the flock I've got coming up, I don't know if I can keep it up. I had, until recently when I restructured everything:

    Sheldon, Raj, and Leonard -the bachelor EE's
    Howard and Bernadette -the bantam Silkie pair
    Amy, Penny, Leslie, and Alex -the BO girls
    Elizabeth, Jane, and Mr. D'Arcy -the Ameraucanas

    Since then, I've lost Mr. D'Arcy, traded Jane, added Peep the Guinea hen and Dapper Dan the BO roo, and sold Sheldon and Raj.

    With all the new chicks I've got, the name sets have gotten mixed up and I don't think I'll be able to think of matching names, so I don't know what I'll do.

    I love the names! I have named all of my chickens, the previous flock of 12 which had all coffee related names, and the current flock. I think it is some sort of initiation of becoming "real" chicken keepers. lol My flock consists of

    Cinnamon and Sugar- the sweet Easter Eggers
    Pepper- the mean sometimes/ nice sometimes Barred Rock
    Princess Cleo- Pepper's accomplice and Rhode Island Red

    I'd love to add a few Buff Orphingtons, Mille fleur d'uccles, light brahmas, and some ducks, but Pepper and Princess Cleo wouldn't allow that and I can't stand to watch the babies get tortured. Done it once, not doing it again.

    I have thought about banning them to the chicken tractor that I hate, but then it would just be torture to me, so no more chickens for now[​IMG]I'll just have to drool over y'alls babies.

    What are you adding to your flock?

    Has anyone else had bad luck with Barred Rocks and Rhode Island Reds?

    So the other day Dad tells me the chickens are getting to be too much work, and we have enough chickens (this after spending several hours working on a chicken tractor).
    He just called me from TSC asking if I wanted some SLW chicks!!! [​IMG]Muhahahaha!!
    I think he's caught the chick 'bug'[​IMG] Funny, I thought he was immune...
