Name Your Chickens!

If you are wondering, "What should I name my new chicks?", you are in the right place.
Note: This article is NOT long AT ALL. But that is how it's meant to be.

Boy or girl?

If you have chicks you will probably not know if they are a boy or a girl until they are around 6 weeks old. Lot's of people pick a name....then if the chick turns out to be a boy and they picked a girl name, they change it to something similar, like: If you have a chick you thought was a girl and named "Dotsy", you can change it to "Dennis" or "Duke". But it all depends on what you want. :)

What breed?

Sometimes people want to name their chickens based on the breed. If you have a Speckled Sussex, you could name it "Speckles" or "Dottie", or something like that.


Chickens all have different personalities! They are each unique in their own way. If you have a hen that likes to peck at you and/or other things, you could name her "Miss Pecks" or "Pepper".

Anything you want:

Some people just like a certain name, and to them it just "fits" the chicken. I personally like the names "Twinkle" and "Ivory". Maybe next time I get chicks I will choose one of those names.

Penguin is a fitting name, for sure! I’m naming our ladies after influential women in (Mostly) the last couple of centuries. I think names that evoke the breed or personality is great.
