Having chickens is a fun experience that everyone loves. However, we have chickens for different reasons. Some people have them as pets, for meat, or for eggs, etc.
I've read articles here on BYC that were extraordinarily helpful. Whenever I read those types of articles, I think to myself, I could never write an article so detailed like that. If I do, it probably wouldn't help anyone.
This article is a little bit unnecessary. It's about naming your chickens.
Some people name their chickens. Some don't, some don't care about that. Chicken owning has a lot of different types of people involved. If you're looking for a name for your chicks, dig right in!
Picking Out A Breed

Think of what name suits your chicken's coloring. HOLD ON! You don't have to name your chicken purely because of it's plumage coloring... there are way more options!
Getting Your Chicks
Here's another option--naming your chicken after how you got them! If your chick is a lucky survivor of some sort of incident that happened along the way to your post office, it could be named Lucky. One of my friends have a family dog that she got because she made it to her Water Polo Travel Team, so she named it Polo. If there was no special way on how you got them, then... read on!
All chickens have their own quirks, whether you care or not. Why not name your little chicks right after their personality traits? Here are a few suggestions!
STRONG: Ekon, Maximus or Max
GENTLE: Clementine, Debby, Poppy, Daisy
FUNNY: Kiki(short for Kekiokolanee), Gilly
You think of some!
