Over 500 Chicken Names! “What could I name my chicken?”

Chicken Names

Some folks name their chickens.  Some don’t.  I am one that does.  How else am I to tell them apart?  For example, I know that Polly Peep is the Silver Laced Wyandotte that always goes broody. If I did not have them named to know who it was each time, I would just know that one of them was broody and it may be the same one as the last time or maybe it wasn’t.  I know it is Polly each time.  Plus, when I talk to them, I can call them by name. 🙂  Everyone in my chicken coop has a name.  

Sometimes it is difficult to come up with just the right name.  This post should help; whether you want an old fashioned name, a food or flower name, a famous name or a theme for types of chickens, this is the place to find just what you need!  I have come up with over 500 chicken names to share with you!

My chickens are named by breed:

Silver Laced Wyandottes are Polly Peep, Lottie Layer, Clara Cluck and Sally Scratch.  

Tetra Tints are Ivy, Daisy and Jasmine.

Red Sex Links are Nutmeg, Ginger, Thyme, Sage and Rosemary.

Easter Eggers are Ariel, Alice, Maid Marian, Giselle, Tiana, Elsa, Belle and Nala.

Welsummers are Trudy, Sharona and Natalie.

And my one Buff Orpington is Honey.
