My Marsh Daisy ladies are the only ones with names out of 30+ chickens.
My boyfriend called them Peahen and Teabag, cause he said that's what they looked like.

I have only named a couple of my chickens. Annie, Berta (she's a big girl, it seemed to fit), Gabby (talks none stop when I'm in the coop).

My favorite names though are my two Welsummers. The pullet is Welsie (short for Welisandra) and the cockeral is Tohr.

I have some Silver Laced Wyandottes coming next month. So... their names will be Sylvia, Lacey, Wynona and Dottie (all variations of the breed name!)

Buff Orpington Hens:
Penny Lane

Honey

My grandma has 5 other hens in the flock that are unnamed. Apparently all the young grand kids had named them different names and were disagreeing about who named them what lol

I started with 6 Red Stars and since I couldn't tell them a part, I just call them all Reba (as in Reba McIntyre with her red hair)! Then I got 2 Araucanas and named them Gladys and Ida, after my grandmothers!

My kids named most of ours - note: they are sexed, and should all be pullets. Not that it matters to the kids. We have:

Calm (RIR)
Fluffy (White Leghorn)
Hopper (Cockoo Marans)
Tinker Tinker Tinker Tinker Bell (yes, that is *4* Tinkers - she's a NH Red)
Chaos (Americauna)
Bandit (Americauna)
Valentine (Americauna)
Carrot Top (Americauna)
Grandpa (Barred Rock)
Rhino (Barred Rock)
Rocky (Barred Rock)
Buffy (BO)
Pirate (RIR)
Angel (RIR - I named this one, since we had a Buffy, I couldn't resist)
Spike (Brown Leghorn - this one named by me too)

...and we have one little brown leghorn still without a name!

I name each batch with a theme. I also tend to name all pullets with male names. My only cockerel had a female name (on accident--we thought he was a she). We had a "Pat" because we were never sure if she was a pullet or cockerel for quite a while.

I had the hockey player group: Gordie (Howe), (Guy) LeFleur, Mario (Lemieux), and Phil (Esposito).

Baghdad Bob and Chemical Ali.

Right now all my chicks are named after gang members on The Wire: Avon, Stringer, Poot, Bodie, D'angelo, Wee-Bey.
