What Are Your Favorite Chicken Names? 

Naming any animal that comes onto the homestead can be tough, but naming your chickens can be even tougher since these animals produce some of the eggs and meat that will be eaten eventually. For those homesteaders who choose not to name their food animals, this won’t be an issue.

For the rest of us who grow attached to the animals that live with us, even those who produce food, picking out a name is a daunting task. This is where having a list, of, for example, chicken names, to choose from comes in handy, and can help narrow down your options.

Some homesteaders find that sticking to a certain theme for names also helps narrow down the long list of names available for chickens since many keep both hens and roosters.

Since the names listed here are an abbreviated list of what is available, hopefully, some of these themes will also help you to narrow down the number of chicken names and eventually choose some fun chicken names for your newest feathery family members.

If you’re having trouble picking a chicken name, some of the names in the list gathered below can act as a good jumping-off point for naming your hen companions.

Which name did you choose? Let us know in the comments! Would also love to hear your suggestions to add to this list.
