How To Come Up With Your Own Chicken Coop Name

Perhaps you haven’t found the name that’s right for you above. Fair enough.

But how do you come up with your own chicken coop name?

Well, these are some strategies to try:

Consider Your Flock/ Coop Size

Are you keeping just a few hens or is your Coop going to be somewhat large?

Well, depending on its size can influence the name.

For instance, using a word like Palace is not as appropriate for a 6-hen Coop as it is for a 12 hen coop and larger.

Consider Hen Traits/Behaviours

Chickens are interesting birds with interesting behaviors.

Why not use them to come up with a collective name for their home?

Pecking, clucking – these are just two examples.

But use words like this, and those that follow below, to pair and construct your own names.

Consider The Style/Color Of The Coop

Perhaps your chicken coop is built in a particular way, maybe it has a certain color.

In this way, you can use features of the coop in the name.

For instance; have a black coop – well, you could call it something like ‘Hens in Black’.

Not great, but you get the idea.

Use These Words

If you are still struggling to come up with a name, you can always use these seed words.

This way, you can simply put another word in front to get your desired coop name.

Besides, you’re only going to get to do it once.

So, do ponder all of the options here today.

Read them out loud, tTalk to your family about them.

But at the end of the day – be sure to make a decision.

Chicken keeping is generally much more enjoyable when you can refer to their coop with a name!

And you don’t want to change it either.

So stick with it.

It will catch on, I promise 🙂
