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.
