100 Funny Chicken Names

We’ve compiled a list of all our favorite funny chicken names to help you name your whole flock in a way that will make you chuckle every time you go to visit them!

Naming chickens can be seriously tough business! You want to find the perfect name for that perfect little ball of fluff. When each chicken has different features and a winning personality, it can be so hard to choose names! 

When we named our first flock of chickens we thought it would be fun to use funny chicken names for every flock member. Our favorite chicken from that bunch was named Taco and she lived to be nearly eight years old. She was full of personality and definitely lived up to her funny name!

Over the years we’ve compiled a big list of funny names for your chickens, to help you get started on this super fun journey of adding poultry to your life!
