    Im sure this has been done alot but thought it would be great to get some more feedback. I have just got chickens and want to name them. the problem is im not very creative, the only one I have named is a Black Sex Link named Peck because he/she pecks at everything. See what I mean, im not very creative. Hopefully we get pages full of awesome names no matter how silly.

    If one of them is really talkative/loud you could name her CC, short for Chatty Chicken. (Thanks to one of my friends for that idea! :))

    if I have a red one it is becoming "Radish" or "Old Red" after the country song.

    Ours are all named after foods... when we got more chickens, I actually did a search for "chicken dishes" to get a list of names to apply. Names we've used so far:

    Original
    Extra Crispy
    Barbeque
    Rotisserie
    Gourmet
    El Pollo Loco
    Sweet
    Sour (both are the same breed)
    Cacciatore
    Shawarma (Mediterranean-style dish)
    Tom Ka Gai (Thai chicken soup)
    Tikka (Indian dish)
    Sesame
    Nugget
    Tender (both Nugget and Tender were silkies)

    When my husband's chicks come, he's going to name them Strip and Finger. And Finger is for the naked neck... that poor ugly chicken won't stand a chance! We're also going to have Taco, Fried Rice, General Tso... I could go on and on.
