Do Chickens Learn Their Names?

Having gone through the full list of funny chicken names, you may be wondering if your chicken is even going to know their name. Fun fact: Chickens learn their names. When handled from a young age and told their name repetitively, your chickens can be conditioned to respond to their name. While chickens will not come running when you call them like a dog, they will know you are talking to them.

Furthermore, chickens are quick to learn your voice, because they associate it with food, snacks, and comfort. They will also remember your face.

Tips For Training Your Chicken to Know Their Name

Now that you have selected a funny name for your chicken, why not read up on how to train them to know their name? Older chickens may not pick up their name right away, but chicks can learn rather quickly.

Once you have decided on a name, it is important to say it around chicks as soon as they are born. Adult chickens will take much longer to recognize that the word they are hearing all the time is their name.

It is also recommended that you take time to interact with your chicks and chickens throughout the day. The more they associate you with repeated sounds, food, and care, the quicker they will listen to what you say.

Lastly, positively reinforce good behavior. Whenever your chicken responds to you calling their name, give them a treat, such as a mealworm or piece of cracked corn. Even if chickens do not comprehend what their name means, they will know they are getting snacks whenever they hear you say it and come running.

Final Thoughts on Funny Chicken Names

Chickens are a fun pet to have, so why not give them a funny name that highlights their personality? And while you can use a classic human name, like Ethel, why not bring a bit of sparkle to the coop? Let Little Peep and Hen Solo have some time in the spotlight. It’s sure to put a smile on your face whenever you start calling your chickens by their funny names.
