Growing up, birds freaked me out a little bit, but then I got to know "Pickles" the parakeet that a friend of the family had, and I really fell in love.

Like the other birds I've met in my lifetime, he had such a terrific personality—he was playful and mischievous and extremely talkative and inquisitive. But like most other pets, he also had a not-so-nice side when he was ready for his nap. He could get a real sour expression, which is why they named him Pickles. It was perfect for him.

If you are thinking about getting a bird or just got one, then you are probably thinking about names for it. Picking one for your new friend isn't easy and you want to make sure it's just right since they'll have it a long time.

A coworker of mine is a farmer and I asked her once if she named her chickens. She said that when she was younger she did, and that even now, she'll name some of her favorites.

Around my area, more and more backyard chickens are being kept as pets and they all have names, so you're going to need to find a good one to that will stand out.

Fun Facts

Barnyard birds aren't just for making eggs and eating. They make nice pets too. Did you know:

  • There are more chickens than any other bird in the world.
  • Chickens will eat lizards and mice.
  • Most ducks are monogamous for a mating season, but may find someone else more interesting the following year.

      Excellent hub page - lots of information!

      I have an African Grey who talks up a storm. His name is Kabul because his previous owner’s son was serving in Kabul, Afghanistan when he named him. I couldn’t change his name because when he speaks he speaks in the third person. Kabul go nite nite, Kabul go out to play... whenever I see hubbers write their profiles in the third person all I can think is they are a bird brain.
