Tips for Naming Your Chick

  • Turn to Color for Inspiration: You can name your chicken based on its color. For example, you can name your chick Rouge, Sliver, Amarillo, or Coffee.
  • Personality Matters: Is your chicken skittish, bold, or crotchety? Names like Old Gramps, Bashful, or King Kong can perfectly illustrate your chick's personality.
  • Cities and States: Why not name it after a city or state? You can either choose your hometown, your parent's hometown, or some place you love. Cheyenne, Wyoming, Tucson, or Reno are all beautiful names.
  • Singers: If you're a big fan, why not name your chicken in that singer's honor. Some examples include Dolly Parton, James Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince, Luke Bryan, Garth Brooks, Bruno Mars, or Justin Bieber.
  • Cartoon Characters: There are some famous animated chickens you can name your chick after, such as Chicken Little, Foghorn Leghorn, Sheldon, Lady Cluck, or Rocky.

        So here's a name and back story...

        I had 10 eggs and one of them had started hatching overnight I made sure all was working and it was, then went to bed. Hoping to see the chick I woke up in the morning and discovered the little hole was still in it untouched and no progress made.What then happened was later that night (two chicks had hatched over the period while the other chick still hadnt made any progress) I helped it abit because it had been close to 24hrs and the chick had dried out the whole inside of its egg. I helped it out and it is now out of its whole egg. We named him/her MIRACLE because if she survives tonight it would be a miracle!
