Hello chicken keepers,

Let's have a little feathery fun! My chicken lady friends and I started chatting about names for your pet chicken the other day. We all have a diverse flock of hens and as such have had the best time naming our girls. A big part of the fun of getting a new pet chicken to add to your flock is coming up with a cute and quirky name that suits your new feather baby's poultry personality. I had a look through our customer testimonials and our Facebook follower chook flocks and come up with a list of, what I think, are the top 20 cutest pet chicken names EVER!
