It is extremely rewarding to name your chickens, transforming them from just egg-laying machines to house pets.

Despite the fact that there is no shortage of human names, you might want to give your chickens a more creative name. As with people, each chicken has their own unique personality. Chickens also have fine memories. Whenever you call out their names, they will come running, particularly if it is because food is in sight.

So we would like to find out: How do you name your pet chickens?

Place your vote above, and please elaborate in a reply below if you chose "Other". And feel free to share your chickens' names with us as well.

I name mine by personality or by the way the look. My Brahma hens are Mama - she acts like one, and ET because when she was a chick she had markings on top of her head like ET eyes, Silkie rooster is Tweety because that’s all he did when he was a chick. I will do the rest another time

We vary. Some of them are celebrity puns (Jennifer Anisthen, Judge Judith Sheindhen, Princess Leia), others are based on the personalities/traits of people we know or celebrities (Barbara is named for my mom, Dortothy was named for Dorothy Zbornak of the Golden Girls), people we know that remind us of them, and also our young kids name them (Chermie, Nayna, and Sally because kids, amiright?)

We name our chickens after female names found in music. Black Bettty, Roxanne, Peggy Su... all the classics!
