    Choosing a names for your new chickens can be rather intimidating work or down right discouraging. You want to give a perfect name to match your new cuddly chick or grown Chicken with dignity [​IMG]. There are so many names you can choose from, but which do you choose? One way that really helps to narrow it down is by finding a theme: Color theme, Begins with the letter B theme, Flower theme, royalty theme, Disney theme, names from your favorite Book, TV show, or movie can really help also. Over the years I have come up with quite a few chicken names of my own, most of the names I didn't get to use yet. I've also have listed the popular names given to a backyard flock.

    Hopefully one out of over 300 names listed will help you name your new chicken or give you an idea on what to name them. Another cute thing I like to do is ad "Mr.", "Mrs.", or "Miss" at the beginning of a name to add character or to change it up. There are so many names you can use, so get creative and have fun!

    XD some of these remind me of my own flock! "Cheese" for example; sounds like when my little sister named her chick of choice "banana smoothie XD She still has that name today :)
  2. Chicken Girl1
    No, Ralphie you don't need to change there names :)! These are just some names you COULD use. They main idea is to think of some unique names to fit your unique chickens!
    (I like the name snuggles BTW)

    Oh and a "Blue"... Bert....
  4. duluthralphie
    I have "Pochohantus" I do not see it on the list? DO I need to change her name?

    I also have a "snuggles" and a "sidekick".
