    Most of us tend to name them according to their personalities or where they land within the flock hierarchy.

    That's true. It shouldn't affect uploading a pic.

    Yes, my chickens have been named for unusual characteristics, personality’s, a d silly stuff they do. To me they all have personality most of the time, but that’s jmo, and all mine are pets. Idk, there’s always ironic names too.

    Yes, it gets rather silly around here too.

    If you got a mean one, like vicious when she's broody, use Attila the hen. Our Attila is beyond mildly vicious when broody and she's raised turkeys and guineas too. She's a nice hen otherwise.

    My last rooster was six..... one before was five...... current one is seven.

    Family is keeping tally inside coop door. My issue is I’d rather eat a pain in the butt rooster vs deal with shenanigans.

    Roosters that attack people often end up in the stew pot.

    It depends on how she was trying to upload them. If it was a link the forum will prevent it or it should. Sometimes that doesn't quite work either.

    Nah, not today. I am tired, too much farm work and too much mud outside to deal with. Also, the Svart Hona chick had an impacted crop but I think I got that fixed.

    How in the heck did that happen? That is so unusual for a young chick.
