Names that Rhyme

There’s something so funny to me about naming a pair of chickens rhyming names, especially if they look alike or are best chicken pals and hang out together all the time.

These rhyming chicken names would be so much fun for your backyard flock!

Some of our favorite hens in our flock were two Buff Orpingtons named Maisy and Daisy. We couldn’t tell them apart so their names were pretty much interchangeable, which just added to the hilarity!

Rhyming names are especially fun if your chickens personality traits or physical attributes match them! I personally can’t wait to have new chicks that I can name Ebony and Ivory!
