What are some of the cutest chicken names you have heard. for some reason people always pick old lady names. but I thought it would be interesting to hear some other names that are different or down right adorable.  caf.gif

I prefer weird names for my chickens that suite their personality and features.  These are just a couple of mine:  Peep (large orpington rooster), Chewy (Ancona hen), Chirp, Sparkles, Parsley, Blossom, Coco, Peaches and Wobble (all silkies), Scrabble, Boggle, Sunny, Viper, Footless, Edwina, Big Bertha and Siggy (all hyline chooks), Happy feet ( a week old chick who likes to dance) and last but not least Nemo, who has one wing smaller then the other.

12 Silkies, 1 Gold Laced Wyandotte, 1 Barnevelder, 2 Blue Orpingtons, 2 new Hampshire Reds, 2 Austrolorps, 2 Pekins, 1 Ancona, 8 Rhode Island Reds and an incubator full of eggs.

My friend was VERY cute and creative with her chicken names, these were ones she listed while she was trying to decide:

 

Grace Shell-y

Audrey Henburn

Sofia Laurhen

Laying Godiva

Princess Buttercup (a Buttercup chicken)

Mary Poopins

Feather Locklear

Maid Marihen

Elizachick Taylor

Henifer Aniston

 

 

My kids pick the craziest names for our chickens.  The rooster is Fat Albert (from Bill Cosby), we also have Lady Gray, Blackie, Cheepers, Chocolate, Snowy.  We've also had Little Red, Henny Penny, Tiny, and Big Stuff (little rooster who thought he was ALL THAT).  We had a pair once named Hugs and Kisses (like the Hershey's candies).
 

Almost forgot about Chubby- he is the largest of our 2 week old chicks and ALWAYS the first to grab at mealworms and run around trying to keep them from everyone.

kids come up with the funniest names! when my brother was little we each got to name a cat and he got a white one with a black spot on its head and he named it  "poophead" that poor cat lived about ten years with that name and she even came to it when you called her.

Fun thread!  We're loving our little babies...

 

My daughter named her Golden Buff "Peep."  Original. LOL.

My son named his Australorpe "Mrs. O'Leary." Named after a black hellhound in the Percy Jackson series.

And I named my Barnevelder "Dixie," as in Dixie Chick.

 

I have to say, Mary Poopins is totally cracking me up.
