Chicken Nicknames

Recommended Posts

We all name our chickens,but do you,like me,also give them nicknames?


Sherbert is always called 'Thug' because she looks like a bouncer.

Floss is 'Stupid',just because she is :roll:

Crumble is 'Beardy Wierdy' because of her odd little feather beard

Rosie is 'Emo',because she is dour & black

& the Late poppy was always called 'Pop Tart'


You don't want to even know what we call the children :wink:8):lol:

I haven't given the girls nicknames but I do do it with the cats all the time depending on what mood they are in!


Tilly - Tuppeny or The Minx

Daisy - Mini Minx

Alfie - Alfit, Baby Minx

Parcel - Parcel Force

Barney - Lucifer or The Thing

Poppy - Popsicle, Chopsy, Mardy Trout, Grumpy Bag


and the late Charlie (cat) was Charlie Rabbit

Some of ours have nicknames

Speckle - grumpy old bag (for obvious reasons)

Bertie - freeloader (ditto)


the bantams are all currently known as "you ridiculous creatures" in the nicest possible way!

Frank the cat - greedy guts (obvious again!)

Delilah the dawg - big lump (ditto)

Georgia (DD 6) - Daisy daydream cos she's always got her head in the clouds

Lauren (DD 5) Lollo cos Georgia couldn't say Lauren when she was little

Harrison - H although he keeps putting the girls dressing up shoes on and shouting "I princess, I princess!!" so perhaps we need to think of something a little prettier

I've never done it with the chooks. But I do with the cats.


Scribble and Honey are dibble and bunny, scrib dibs and funny or dribble and runny (the last one was courtesy of my friend Alan who is no longer with us).

the chickens don't get nicknames but some of the neighbours do :D


the bloke who lives opposite is known as "lord of all he surveys". He has the largest house on the close and we often see him, with cup of tea/coffee in hand, walking around the boundary of his house with a smug look on his face.

just a bit of trivia for you. After reading 'A Fistful of Gitanes' I discovered Serge Gainsbourg's nickname was 'Lulu' (his real name was Lucien Ginzburg) so your son is in good company ;)


A lot of postwar Jews changed their names to 'fit in'. Gene Simmons' (of Kiss) real name is 'chaim witz'!


I read a lot of biogs (very nosey ;) )


sorry for going off at a tangent!!!??? :doh:

We sometimes refer to our two Omlet hens as "the aunties". When we got the other two, about a month after the Omlet ones, the Omlet hens bustled around looking just like old fashioned aunties (and with their skirts tucked into their knickers).


And my husband sometimes calls Penny Darth Vader, because she used to loom menacingly (and blackly) over the little Frisian. :roll:
