Favorite baby chick names!

Discussion in 'Raising Baby Chicks' started by FamilyFarm12, Mar 18, 2018.

  1. Hello BYCers! I was curious, what are everyone’s favorite chick names? I ordered 2 Light Brahmas, 2 Barred Rock, 1 Olive Egger, and 1 BLR Wyandotte. I have a few names in mind, but wanted to hear yours! (Feel free to post pictures of your babies!)

    These are my 4 RIR pullets, they are much bigger now. I named them after the Downton Abbey ladies: Mary, Edith, Sybil and Cora. :)

    I also have a Violet and Mrs. Hughes. Demelza from Poldark. And my 3 Ameraucanas are Betsy, Tacy and Tib, who were my favorite book characters growing up. :)

    I’ve used all of those but cherries, which I hope to use on a new batch of chicks hatching soon. I have a ton more but those are my favorites!

    My chickens tend named by characteristics, as in "that sweet silver one," (profile picture) "the nice one" "that jerk with the peacomb" and "the (insert random slightly off-colour swearword)" But over the years, a few sweet pets have earned names.

    My two named cockerels are Gordon and Edmund (nice location, by the way), and in the past, I have had Redneck, Hemorrhage, Squeaker, Chester and Bertha, who was supposed to be a hen.

    Lavender, Cynthia, Sylvia, Elizabeth, Adeline, Mikey (I named her Michelle. Black hen. Nothing whatsoever to do with the Obamas.) Agnes, Lacey, Charlotte, and Joyce.

    I like old names. Can you tell?
