Chicken Names!!!

Guess what?! The chicken house has finally arrived.... woohoo! I ordered if a few weeks ago so have been waiting for ages, but now its here and i'm so happy! The plan is to make the house this week and go 'shopping' for some chickens at the weekend! I CAN'T WAIT!!!

So, now onto a very important part of keeping chickens... I need you lovely bloggers out there to help me out with some names! You can't have chickens and not give them a lovely old fashioned name!



Here's some ideas of names i've had, although i need to get it down to four. Please let me know your favourite or suggest any other names and i'll add them to the list!

Alice
Betsy
Daphne
Esmeralda
Ethel
Henrietta
Lily
Mabel
Sage
Matilda
Hilda
Florence
Edna
Olive
Gertrude
Elsie
Ruby
Rose
Prudence
Violet
Margo
Mavis
Doris

Thank you lovely bloggers!

And thank you all for commenting on my last posts about the vintage caravan, its great hearing what you all think about it! And please vote on the right how much you would be willing to spend on hiring it for the day for a wedding!

  1. Ooh I love thinking of names for chickens. No, really I actually do! I would pick Matilda, Betsy, Mabel and Gertrude. And then I would probably get more chickens, so I could give the rest of the names to them!!! Suzie. xxx

  2. You won't regret chickens, I adore mine (A Black Rock called Charlotte and a Bluebelle called Nancy) they were clucking round after me yesterday while I was gardening :)

    I love all your names, especially Edna and Margot.

  16. Hello Laura...luuuurverly blog you have here, I've just read back over your posts, your caravan is gorgeous, really lovely! glad to hear you got some hens, they really are fun aren't they and why is it old fashioned names seem to suit them so well? I think we have used a few on your list, our cats have 'old lady names' too!
