Well, since we've all got some many new chicks, thought it was time to talk about your favorite chicken names again. Here are my all time faves. Someone else is welcome to use any you want! Share yours.

Share the love.

Attila the Hen
Peeping Tom ( just thought of that one last night)
Artemis Fowl
Pandora
Medusa ( turned out to be a roo, rechristened Me'Duder)
Sassypants ( DH named that one!)
Twinkletoes.

I also have/had:
Winged Victory, Queen Elizabeth, Vidallia, Cleopatra, Hildegard, Butterball, Yuliana, Cumulonimbus,
El Dorado, Piccadilly, Ursula, Irene, Oona McCool and Savannah.

The new group is named Twinkletoes, Ariadne, Hippolyta, Ishtar, Siddartha, Sassypants, Peeping Tom, Amelia, Macadamia, Tuscany, Sahara, Amaretto and one not named yet! alsough, some may chnage if I get any better ideas. ( hint, hint)

I love chicken names! What do you name your chickens?
Mine are straight run ( mostly) this time, so I am trying to choose gender neutral names as much as I can.

My reds are Henrietta,,,Hortense and Hav-at-it.
Still gotta come up with the lorps names, but they all look the same and are not as friendly as the reds.
The araucannas are the only ones that are totally different.
They are arauhit,
arauann,
and araumiss.
Get it? ...Hit and miss.

Well, in my coop we've got...

Lucy & Ethel (Ameraucanas I got for Mother's Day last year, which started my whole "life with chickens" experience.)

Eunice & Harriet (Rhode Island Reds who are like two nosey sisters - always sticking their beaks in, wanting to see what I'm doing when I'm outside.)

Betty (A Frizzle who runs around like the sky is falling.)

Miss Scarlet (Millie Fleur who has gone broody on me.)

...And before he went to a new home, we had
The Colonel
(Millie Fleur rooster named after Colonel Sanders of KFC)

I can't remember who it was, but someone here on DG last year said they named all their roos "Food". She said she would call to them and say "Here Food, Food !
She said it made it easier, because they butchered all their roos.


I have an Amercauna with the tufted face. Her name is Fuzz-face.

We used to have a little tiny reddish blonde bantam hen. Her feathers were the same color as I remember my grandmother's hair. And she was so tiny, reminded me of how tiny my grandmother was, only 4'10".
Her name was Clementine, so we named the little hen Clementiny.

love them! I like when chickens are named after old fashioned lady names.

My mother had a few old aunts when she was growing up, and her chickens were named after them ~ Ethel, Irene, LindaLee, Hattie, Mabel and one incontinent chicken fondly refered to as Bad*ss. ( She always had a very dirty butt)

How funny.

My mom had an old aunt that was on the ornery side during the days of prohibition, (her younger years) she was a 'flapper' and had quite the reputation in the family. She ran around with a bunch of people who were involved in bootlegging liquor. The family used to refer to her as
"Dirty Gertie", as her name was Gertrude. We named our naughty brahama hen Dirty Gertie, after her. Although our Dirty Gertie never had a chance to cause quite the scandal the aunt did. She did eventually run off, and join up with our back neighbors flock. Maybe they were a little faster crowd...The name was a perfect fit after all.

Turkeybeard, if my two RIR were human, they would be telephone operators who would listen in on your phone call and then gossip around town about all the juicy news they heard. They really (can't) keep their beaks out of anything going on in the yard. Nosey busybodies...

They are MY favorites too! ;)

Oh yeah... They "shadow" me now and then. They also go in the garage while my DH is working on his grandfather's tractor and look over his shoulder too. ...He loves that. (Not really) ;)

It's just the way they hold their neck and head when they're being nosey. ...How can I explain it? ...I got it - you've seen commercials on TV where a man is sitting in a coffee shop or airport and he's working on his lap top. Then the guy next to him ever so slightly leans and stretches his neck a little so that he can see what's on the lap top screen? That's exactly how the RIRs do it when they're being nosey. ...Makes me laugh every time! ~:>

My original pair of Dominiques, they are Mr. and Mrs. Bocker.

my geese are known collectively as "the Weeders".

Pekin ducks are group named as a team "The Kwispy Kwackers".

We are finishing off 48 meat birds, down to corn and scratch and
low pro feed now. another 2 weeks.

I have 100 meat chicks coming soon. I ordered a custom mix from
our mill, the cost is $78.56 for 500lbs! and thats for the 22% non
medicated!

I think my egg-girls are starting to lay smaller eggs. Are they going
down the path of smaller and smaller eggs and then stopping?
Or is this just a phase? I thought the elder chickens laid the larger
eggs.

Chickenlover2,

I have 24 babies, 23 of whom need names! My grown up and laying hens are Helga, Brownie, Ruby and Pebbles. My big rooster is Rocky and my bantam white crested black polish rooster is Satchmo. He is in separate living quarters because Rocky wants to kill him.

The only chick I have named so far is Polly - she lost an eye the first day I got her when the brooder lamp fell down. So I thought of pirates who wear patches over one eye and their parrots - so she is named Polly. She is doing just great, by the way.

What's really funny is I bought all these chicks and I have no idea what kind they are! They are all the big laying hen breeds, but that's all I know!

I also have two nameless ducklings!

I love your names!

Hi chickenlover. I find it helps to go with theme names--I named my current batch after cheeses, like Cheddar and Colby. I plan to move on with flowers, like Rose, Larkspur and Buttercup. Of course after you name them, you sometimes find the name doesn't fit--so stay flexible!

We have chickens with all sorts of names. Some of our standard size chickens are Jumper, Sleeper, Pooper, Poozie, Ginger, Chick, Eagle, KJ just to name a few. (the kids named them)
Bantams we have Brownie(Golden laced Polish), Speckles (Silver Sebright), Smudge (Silver laced bearded polish), Banana (white non bearded polish) and PJ (Blue Cochin). We also have baby bantams not yet named.
We have standard size roosters named, Sir Fozworth Peckfellow, Baby, and Splits.
We also have some baby buffs, one rooster and 4 hens. We have decided that the rooster will be Mango, the hens will be Buffy, Sandy, Peaches, and Goldie.

We initially was given a trio...Buff Orp Roo...Randy Dandy... he knew his role in life well. He was matched well with Hazel and Agnes.
Then we inherited 5 roos...that crowed at 4AM...I knew each little voice and threatened them every day ... the oldest one (RIR x) was going to be ChesterFried, The Jersey Giant with the hoarse crow became "Frickasee" (and he really did), the little grey speckled roo with the screechy crow was Noodle Soup (Likewise he was successful), The brownish speckled one never completed a cockadoodledoo...so he was Taco ...and he really was a very good taco! The final little guy was WingDing...he didn't crow yet...just a quiet little er...and so he lived to become a hormonal teenager with 3 little pullets of his own...changed his name to Horace (after a skirtchasing relative) and his ladies: Sadie, Sukie and Suzie. Chester-Fried was too pretty to do in so he got his ladies too...Cassie, Carrie, and Clara.
Randy inherited a third hen by the name of Martha. Then we got Elmer and Ella and Trina. By then the numbers began to overwhelm me especially when you get 50 at the same time and they all look alike! I had to fall back on my girlfriend's naming method...All other chickens are Charlies... We have Fried Charlie, creamed Charlie, Baked Charlie etc. I think it is more fun to get a couple at a time and name them special. ;-)

Hester Sue

Well we have Bert the Silver Laced Wyandotte Roo. Now we need an Ernie. The hens are called the "gals" collectively. The geese were Thelma and Lousie but came to be more affectionately and correctly named Thelma and Louie. Our parakeets are Bonnie and Clyde. Also the 2 geese prior to Thelma and Louie were Aflac and Honker.

We have also had ducks named chicken and sock (never let the 2 years olds name the animals) LOL

Love all of your names.

Jcomy,
like those rooster names. When we had 3 roos that were going to become dinner my kids called them Dinner #1, Dinner #2 and Dinner #3. They were hoping that would get them used to the idea of them becoming dinner. Didn't happen though, the roosters are in the freezer but they say that they won't eat any.

My brother always named his with food names. Like chicken nugget, broiler, etc.

and happy spring. we have aleady had our first deep spring killing frost.
tonight we are having howling winds with driving rain, but that is ok, becaues
we have been without rain for a month. oy

New in the Nursery of La Petite Trianon des Poulet

10 Pekin ducks, getting very big, very fast! should be super good eating
very soon! yum yum!
10 Gold Orpingtons- I plan on naming these collectively. "Gold Diggers"

25 broiler x's. no names, just feel their bony legs to see if they are fat
enough to go into the oven like hansel und gretl.
4 broadbreasted white turkeys. I cant tell them apart from the broiler x-s
yet! but i am sure they will come into a growing spurt, right into our
freezer!

These guys are all in the screened off portion of the chicken house,
and when the good weather comes, and the babies can go out,
i will put out the buffs, but not the others. i fully intend to grow them
up and out and fast and butcher. no more ms.nice girl.

My three pullets are named as follows:

Salad is an Americauna
Sandwich is a Black Jersey Giant.

They are all for eggs, but it always amusing to see who laughs hysterically, and who gives me a horrified look when I descide their names.

we have a bob white living at the farm now.
"bob white" bob white...

a pekin duck has layed a bunch of eggs by the
fountain pond, and as I had been cleaning it out, I emptied it
and all of a sudden she whirred and jumped out from a
globe arborvitae she has nested in underneath. so, the
fountain will remain uncleaned till she is done. I love when
the ducks hatch out a bunch of ducklings. OMG they are the
cutest things on the farm.

our Buff Orpingtons are a scrappy healthy bunch. they don't grow
very big or fast, but they hold in a group and are sweet. I am expecting
big eggs from them!

Mr. Bocker our rooster is still here, and will always be, this is his farm, his
flock. He is such a good rooster. Sweet, and considerate of all the girls.
I love when I throw some goodie out or if he finds a nest of ants he will
call the girls over to enjoy the bounties. He makes a funny cluck cluck
noise that everyone (including me) recognizes, "food food food".
It could be the littlest bebble, but the girls run over anyway. You can see
their disgust sometimes when all they find is a grass seed. He better
watch out and not call Wolf too many times!

I made strawberry shortcakes last night and threw out the toppers to
the chickens. They scarfed it up so fast their beaks were smokin!

Of course you are! We have all become unruly and troublesome in your absence. The Chicken Fairy went AWOL and Edmund found out about Patchouli and the Green Basilisk. Don't do it again.

Just came to the thread, but we do have named chickens, goats and cow.
Pecky, Pecktoria(the queen of the flock), Peckabeth(the wannabe),Peckrid and Peckmar(they were German),Pecksniff the rooster (a supercilious fool later known as Dumplin's) Pecque˝a(the runt). The flock got too big after that to continue the theme... The goats are Lollipop, Pollyanna, Mollycoddled, Winter Holly Bough (courtesy of my daughter). The cow just had to be Moothilda.

We never can quite keep up the themes we start but somehow I can't help myself starting new ones for every new critter crop. Dumplin's has become the traditional name for any chicken whose behavior is "UNsatisfactory."

Ducks at our house would end up Diddles, Doddles, Dudley, and Dr Doolittle for starters. My backseat driver daughter suggests Drakey. Danika, Donna, Do˝a Dewdew
but never ever, no matter how low I stoop, would I use Donald. (possibly because I'm guilty of worse so often...)

Thanx to both of you. Truth is I wake up in the middle of the night with this stuff and am gladder than glad that Somebody else out there gets into naming things. Last night 2am I remembered Peckiko(the Japanese exchange chicken) and rattled off Delilah, Deiter, Donna, Delicious, Don Quaxote. Then rolled over in shame and slept for a few more hours. OOps. Little white men with a pretty summer white straight-jacket with my name all over it... Come to think of it there was also RePecka (Pecka for short). That all ended the day we got 12 more black sex-link hens and you could never look at one chicken long enough to ID her.

The Welsummer rooster (presumably) tf got from me is "Pecky", short for Peccorino. I hope she finds him a nice girlfriend or two.

My Jersey Giants are Trenton and Newark. The Aussies are Perth, Adelaide, Victoria, Melbourne and Sydney. I may need more Aussie names...tf's Aussies are VERY sweet birds.

Like Grownut I spend a lot of energy coming up with the names--but I am not always too consistant about keeping them--sometimes they just don't suit the animal's character.

I can never quite keep it up myself. My problem is I can't help starting what I know I can"t finish. Y'ever try to think of 19 good goat names that rhyme with 'olly'

By the bye, Outback sounds very masculine if it's not too 'steak-y'

Yes, I could call an Aussie roo "Outback"--although it would really be a perfect name for my Delaware because that is where she is laying her eggs and I can't find them. Errrgh!
