    I have some banties that I would like to name!

    So any rooster and hen name suggestions would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks,

    What colors are your chickens? You could name them based on color or personality.
    Example:

    A golden chicken could be named:
    Paris
    Goldie
    Sunny
    Cream

    A black chicken could be named:
    Midnight
    Mocha
    Star

    A White Chicken could be named:
    Snow
    Pearl
    Cloud

    A brown chicken could be named:
    Gladys
    April
    Rosetta


    Or

    You could name them by personality

    For example:
    My black chicken plays with the water when I fill up their water bucket so I named her Flo.

    Usually you will find a good name for them once you know them for a while.

    We are waiting for some personalities to show before naming our 4 week olds. As we have 2 each of Welsummers, Barred Rock & RIR, we've named the "breeds" Omelette, Caramel & Scratch but I'm sure we'll come up with more as we get a chance to get to know them more.

    So far, I have named two roosters and three hens:

    Roosters are:
    Caleb and Joshua (because they are constantly spying around for bugs and things for the hens)

    Hens are:
    Phena
    Phosa
    Angel

    So the names that you suggested I will probably use some of them! I still have three roosters and three hens to name!

    Thanks,
