Some Tips to Help You Name Your Chicks
Still stuck for names? Take a deep breath, make yourself a cuppa, and see if these tips help:
Personality? - What is your hen or rooster's personality like? Look for characteristics that are unique to them and see how they tie in with a name.
What sounds right? - Let’s be honest, there are only a few names that sound right. It’s easy to start scratching names off of a list to get it down to a short few names. Be ruthless at first, if a name doesn’t sound right, pass on it.

Ask a friend - If you’re really stuck or are an indecisive person and will never be able to settle on a name, let someone else do it for you!
